    Hi I have firmed cambridge and insured imperial. And I really don't know where I will go, so the cambridge's offer is tuff

    The problem is I don't know how much living cost loan I should take, as the is a big different in cost between Cambridge and london. In addition, Cambridge gives much more than imperial for low income family. (Like me)

    So any advice on how much maintenance loan I should take please

    Hi Mathsy,

    Sorry I can't advise you on your finances only on what you can apply for and how to do this.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for reply, could you tell me whether the maintenance loan is the same thing as the government living cost grant? and do they given out annually? If yes, then do I need to apply annually?

    Hi again,

    The maintenance loan is repayable and the maintenance grant is non repayable but dependent on household income. As with the tuition fee loan both of these need to be applied for each year of the course.

    Hope this helps,

    many thanks for your reply,

    I have another question:

    Is it still possible to change amount I am borrowing from sfe once I have submitted the application in?
    If yes, then when is the final deadline?

    Hi Maths,

    Yes you can amend the amount or type of funding that you've applied for at any time in the year.

    Thanks,
    Mark-Lee
