    I am in my 3rd year of a 4 year NHS course and receive a means-tested NHS bursary. For this reason, my loan from student finance has always been the fixed non-means tested figure of £2324 per year for the past 3 years. None of my circumstances have changed, but when I was completing my application for this year, I was told I will be given the fixed rate of £1811 for the year. Can you please tell me why I am set to receive £500 less when none of my circumstances have changed and it is not income assessed?

    Hi Afaz,

    It sounds as though you may have been awarded the final year rate of loan so I would suggest checking your application to make sure that your course length is listed as 4 years and not 3 years.

    Thanks,
    Mark-Lee
