Problem with maintenance loan for pgce

    I have a place to do a pgce at UCL starting in September on a course for which no government training bursary is available.

    As such, I was depending on the money from the maintenance loan to afford to do the course, but I've been told I'm only eligible for £1000 for the whole year's maintenance. Could I have filled in the form wrong or does that seem like a normal amount? My Dad is a baker and my Mum is an accountant, so hardly rich, so based on their incomes I was certainly expecting to be offered more than £1000 and now I don't know if I can do the course.

    Any advice would be great!


    Hi adambates

    I would advise you to call us to check your application. The basic maintenance loan not based on household income alone, is higher than this.
