    hi guys i've applied for foundation art as i want to go on to to graphic design. i have received an offer from birmingham city and this is where i want to go. i am currently 17, will be 18 when i start the course so the course will be free for me. (yessssssss.) however i don't know whether i am elligible for a student loan to cover accomodation?

    help would be much appreciated, the student finance website and hotline weren't helpful.

    EDIT: sorry, the title of the thread should read 'will i'

    The government doesn't fund the course so you can't apply for a student loan, but you can recieve EMA or ALG FE whilst on the course.

    The government won't give you funding for the accomdation either. That comes with a student loan.
