Discussion and questions about student financial support arrangements - from government loans and grants to university bursaries. Please use the main Money & Finance forum for more general financial topics.
Today i started applying for student finance, but it was confusing as im hoping to do social work, there is a social work bursary and when i was applying i mentioned there was an NHS bursary, and then it said i wasnt eligable for student finance, so i rang the social work bursary and they said you cannot call it an nhs bursary because it allows 4,500 not the full amount of the course.
Because i have a bursary of 4,500 and do not have a social work bursary option on the student finance it suggested an 8500 loan, ( this is the cost of my course) or to do it with household income... which do i choose? and how do you only apply for a certain amount of money, because if i get this bursary i only want to borrow the other 4500? Thanks
