Students applying for 2017 watch

    • Thread Starter

    Recently, my sister told me that the srudent loan has been lowered to 3k. I haven't seen anything like that in the news recently. However, when talking to someone online, yhey told me that it's the grant that has been lowered.

    I don't understand how student finance works so I'm not sure how that would affect me. I wanted to move from Liverpool to London in order to study Japanese Language as long as I get good grades for my AS exams.

    My family is reluctant to let me move so far as they think there would be not enough money but from what I've read, there shouldn't be much difference.

    Can someone explain what changes have been made and how that would affect students?

    Thank you.

    Hi Emilia.k.

    Currently the funding for 16/17 is not fully finalised.

    However, only the maintenance grant has been removed, the maintenance loan will actually be increased to balance out this instead.

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
