Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Hey guys. I applied for Student Finance like usual (second year) and only received my loan (minimum) despite being eligible for the highest combined loan/grant.

    I made the mistake of forgetting to apply for the grant as wasn't aware you had to do this again for the new year but the information has now been sent off (about a week ago or so) and I was just wondering how long it takes for the grant to be processed and put through? My loan and wages I get from my part-time job cover my rent but living expenses are a bit of a struggle so was just wondering if anybody has had this experience and knows about how long it takes?

    Thanks guys!

    Anyone happen to know? Would just like a general timeframe if possible!

    Hi there.

    Financial information to apply for a grant can take up to 3 weeks to assess.
