The who, what, where and when of student finance! watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could explain the basics of student loans ect.

    - is everything to be repaid, or just some or what?
    - how much is your maintenance loan normally

    I am a welsh student, and I will be doing a degree in Nursing, starting in 2012.

    Thanks everyone - also any other stuff I should know!

    There is a calculator online to work out indicative numbers. Those on the lowest (household) incomes get grant and loan, most get loan. Loan gets paid back, grant doesn't. Everyone gets Tuition Fee Loan if they apply for it, and that gets paid back.

    Any more questions just ask, preferably qouting me.

    Wales is different to the English regulations that I know and NHS is always different to general courses as the NHS provide bursaries and tuition fees so I'm not massively sure but I have found this page which may help you..


    Also contact the university you wish to go to as they can also help to point you in the direction of further information.

    Sorry I can't be any more help but I have no idea about Welsh regulations!
Do you like carrot cake?
