    I'm a second year student and was re-applying for student finance today and saw that they were still offering student grant (subject to income) but i thought Osborne scraped the grant earlier this year starting immediately? am i missing something or is the grant still available for those who starting uni prior to the decision?

    Hi dronet

    The changes only affect new students starting in the 2016/2017 academic year. Those who started courses that were eligible for the grant are able to receive the same funding to complete their course.
