    Hey,

    I am in the process of applying for my final year of student finance. I have had my amount reduced from my first year by £500 and then found that from my second year I have had my amount reduced by a further £700. I know that this is reduced, however, this seems an excessive amount considering that my parents have not had any major pay increase and my brother finished uni when I finished my first year. I tried ringing up but he said it would be based upon my parents income but there is not much help to figure out how much I should be getting based on my parents income in my final year.

    Could you please help at all?

    Many thanks,
    Sarah

    Hi Saz,

    The amount of maintenance grant that you are entitled to depends entirely on the amount of your household income from the 11/12 tax year. The amount of maintenance loan you receive is affected by household income but all final year students automatically receive a lesser amount of maintenance loan as their final year is shorter than the previous ones.

    Hope this helps,
    Mark-Lee
