Student Finance (England) – Basics

How much will I get?

The amount of Student Support you will receive, if you are eligible, depends on:

  • your and your family’s income;
  • when you start/started your course

Student Support is, broadly speaking, composed of:

  • a loan for tuition fees;
  • a loan for living costs;
  • certain supplementary grants for specific categories, for example disabled students;
  • a non-repayable maintenance grant.

If you are eligible for a full maintenance grant, you might also be eligible for an additional bursary from your university.

For more information about applying and application process you can visit the Student Finance England website
