    Hiya,

    I am a 2nd year student. I just went onto my account to see if i had to apply for my 3rd year loan yet (cant remember if this happens automatically). I followed the links to apply for my 2013/14 loan and confirmed my status hadnt changed yet it has come up that i will be getting £500 less maintenance loan than my previous 2 years? My maintenance grant has increased by £80 but surely that cant be right to reduce my loan that much!?

    I vaguely remember final year students complaining that they cost less loan, however my course is a 4 year course and so my 3rd of course should not be a lower loan.

    Thanks in advance

    Ok i would phone them up and ask if it's because they think you are in your final year, and if so tell them otherwise.

    Hi Mason,

    As Phase Duck has suggested I would speak to an adviser to make sure we have the correct course length for your or alternatively you can check this via your online account.

    Hope this helps,
    Mark-Lee
