In the guide for existing full-time students about re-applying for student finance for 2010/2011, it says that students in their final year will receive less Maintenance Loan. Why is this? Does anyone know anything about this?

It has always been this way under the current system. It is because they don't account for the summer holidays as you can go straight into full time work in June/July.

its BS. my 'expenses'- i.e. accommodation, which is what all of my loan goes on, is the same for all years. its no less in the 3rd year. tight fisted *******s.
Twaddle.
Up to yr 3 your loan factors in the summer vac.
In Yr 3 it doesn't - you've finished.

Exactly - most people's rent will go up for the next academic year with inflation and most of us will still be paying rent up until July/August/September. They also don't allow for how difficult it might be able to get a job straight after graduation.

You can claim jobseekers which you can't do in previous years, whilst still at uni.
