    Hi,

    I've just applied for my student finance for next year when I will be on an unpaid service placement within a hospital.

    I have had my application confirmed but I'm only receiving a reduced loan and no grants?

    Im only querying this because throughout my degree I have managed to secure the maximum grant/loan due to my circumstances yet know its showing no entitlement.

    Also, as Im undertaking an unpaid service placement I thought there would be more help available to me?

    If anyone can help me that would be much appreciated

    I'm pretty sure if you are on a placement year your loan and grant is significantly reduced weather its paid or not because during that time you're not technically classed as a Student as you're not attending classes or doing assignments..

    You are right that as you are doing the placement in a hospital, you are entitled to the full amount. Student finance may want proof of this. It looks like student finance have given you the default amount for a non service placement.
