    Okay..
    So I am applying for Student finance to apply for this September.
    I got given this as my estimate amount I am eligible to:

    Maintenance loan of £3458.00
    Tuition Fee Loan of up to £3465.00
    HE Maintenance Grant of £2984.00

    If my University charges £8000+ how will I afford to pay for it with that loan? :/
    I am so confused. Surely that doesn't equal the correct amount to pay for my University fee's AND living? I'll be getting no help from home, my parents are very unsupportive about university. Maybe I am just adding it up wrongly.. I'm not sure, just quite confused that's all. Would be very thankful if someone could explain it to me please.

    It's something we've seen many, many times in this round of applications.

    If you're entitled to tuition fee support it will cover your whole tuition fees. If you're at all worried give SF a call to check what's gone wrong, but if your tuition fees are 8k then your tuition fee loan will cover all of it

    It looks like you've done an estimate for the 2011/12 academic year, when what you actually want to do is 2012/13.

    Unless you're going to a private university, then the tuition fee loan will always cover all of the tuition fees.
