Financial Support for UK students
If you take out both a tuition fee loans and a maintenance loan, these will be rolled together and repaid only after you leave your course and your income is over £26,575.
Full time UK students from lower income households, who started their course before September 2016, may be eligible for non repayable help with living costs through a maintenance grants from your Student Financial Authority (for example, Student Finance England). However, these grants have been replaced with loans for new full time students starting their course from September 2016.
