    I want to apply for Occupational Therapy in September and i have been reading around, people have been saying the money they get isnt enough. I will be living away from home and my parents wont be helping me as they have low income. Is it possible for me to apply for the normal student grant and loan instead of the NHS one?

    Nope ,you have to go NHS bursary as they pay your tuition for you and if your eligible for NHS help even if you don't claim it then sfe won't give you more than a minimum loan. If you re parents are on under 20k ish you do actually get similar from NHS to what you could have got from sfe, sometimes even more so I wouldn't worry.
    I d believe the people struggling could potentially not be from low income background (although I could be wrong)
