    How does student finance usually separate the payments per term? I have it all set up and ready to go - but the payments on the website is still for last years payments so I can't see how much I'll be getting per term yet. Anyone else have the same issue?

    I get just over £9,600 maintenance loan and grant and really need to start trying to budget how much I have to spend per month/week etc. I know it's early but I didn't last year and wasted so much money! So I need to this year..

    Yeah no I know that, but I need to know how much exactly. Like is it divided a specific % each term? Or randomly or? Why isn't the student finance website telling me :cry::cry:

    Its roughly a 33% each payment then assume you could get a bit say £100 more on the last payment, hope that helps

    Yeah, you get a little bit more over the summer. If you get the full grant, you get £1 less grant for your final payment; but more loan from what I remember.

    It's split 33% / 33% / 34%
