    Hi,

    I get the full maintanence grant from student finance because of my parents financial position, however today I got an additional payment from the HEI bursary people (according to my statement), I haven't applied for any bursary so is this a mistake?

    Is it a loan and do I need to pay it back?

    Thanks

    As long as you tick the box when applying then your family income information gets shared with your university - so they'll automatically award you any bursaries/awards you're eligible for.

    Bursaries are like grants...you don't repay them

    Hey I'm in the same situation right now. Did everything work out and you were able to keep it in the end? I'm confused because I haven't applied to it and am scared, too, that it's a mistake.

    Thank you xx
