    I was wondering what is the difference between a Maintenance Grant and Loan?
    I heard that some people apply for a Maintenance Grant for 2016 but what are the requirements?

    Grant = free monies (don't have to pay back)
    Loan = you pay back

    Requirements wise... Household income must be quite low to get the full £3400 grant.

    The Maintenance Grant is being scrapped. Those who start uni in 2016 will only get a Maintenance Loan.

    Not for 2016 no. The total money given out is higher but you now have to pay it all back eventually.

    The rules will be the same - no maintenance grant.
