    I'm doing a year long work placement next year, will I get the same amount for my maintenance loan? I need to know because I need to start reapplying for accommodation next year and have to decide whether I can continue to live out next year or live at home. (I get the minimum) No one I ask seems to know. Help please?

    EDIT: My placement is most likely going to be unpaid.

    If the placement is paid (don't know about unpaid). You get the non-income assessed maintance loan and tuition fee loan. No grants.

    I never got grants anyway.

    I don't really understand this, I get the absolute minimum loan, which is fine, I am not complaining, but how am I supposed to pay rent with a reduced loan? FML.

    Find out if the placement is paid, talk to your Uni and phone Student Finance.

    If it's unpaid, can you explain more about what you'll be doing, as where and what you do will affect your entitlement.
