    Hey,

    I should be able to get full loans/grants/bursary when I start uni in September. I was just wondering, do I still get them all on my 3rd year which is a year in industry?

    Also, do most people still live around uni campus whilst they are on there sandwich year, or do most just go back home to live?

    Thanks

    You get a reduced maintenance loan, which is not income dependent everyone gets the same. You can also get a tuition fee loan if your uni charges tuition fees during a placement year. There a no grants during a placement year. Most people get paid placements and therefore don't really need the money from loans and grants.

    Where you live depends on where your placement is obviously, most people I know lived at home as their placements were near home than uni.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
