                • You can also apply for a student maintenance loan to help towards your living costs up to £8,200 if you live away from home to study and up to £6,904 if you stay at home.

                • You will only start to repay the loan after you have graduated and are in employment and earning over £21,000. You will repay 9% of your income above £21,000. For example if you earn £25,000 you would repay £30 a month. (i.e. 9% of £4,000/12 months).

                StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
