How To Apply For Student Finance UK: When and Why?

What is Student Finance?


It is a loan for maintenance for students to cover their cost of tuition or cost of living. Hence, student finance options can be combined. A reason why some students take loans is to pay for expenses that their grants don't cover.


Therefore, student finance is #student loans or grants for tuition fees and living costs, extra help, and student loan repayments.


Who can apply? A UK national, an EU national from an EU who is under 18 and have lived in the UK for at least 7 years or 18 or over lived in the UK for at least 20 years or at least half of their life in the UK.

If you are 60 years or over you might get limited funding for your Maintenance loans if you are 60 or over for the first day of the first academic year of your course, studying full-time and your course started after 1 August 2016.

The amount you get depends on your household income. Non-UK nationals can apply if they have settled status on their first day of the first academic year of their course- which could be 1 September, 1 January, 1 April, or 1 July.
