    hi

    when I went to university the student finance I use to get over £3500 a year and my tution fee is fully payed.

    my friend just finished college and he's applying for student finance, but they're only given him £1937 a year and his tution fee will not be payed £0

    the tution fee is £8500

    I was wondering what is the reason for this, he is not from the uk but he is allowed to settle here, but i don't think thats the problem because I'm not from the uk aswell.

    his parents earn less than £15,000 a year

    is there any changes in the law or is it for another reason.


    thankyou

    Maybe a lot of your grants came from the actual university you went to and his university doesnt offer the same perks?
