    I got my student finance entitlement letter yesterday and it's £8,567 for the First year of the Foundation Science Degree in International Travel and Tourism Management and I'm wondering is that not too much? I got £5,092 for the Maintenance Loan, it breaks down into £3,630 for the loan which is not based on household income and an extra £1,462 which is based on household income, then the Special Support Grant which is £3,475 and that's why my Maintenance Loan is so high because I got the Special Support Grant which doesn't reduce the amount of Maintenance Loan I get. Is this normal is to get such a high amount?

    The special support grant doesn't reduce the loan. The maintenance loan does.
