Hi, I have applied to SFE for a maintenance loan towards my midwifery degree, and as I am researching into this, it says 'reduced rate maintenance loan' everywhere, although I am really confused what this means?? Is it that I get less of a loan for doing a healthcare course?? The loan is only £2,324 so I am very confused as to whether this is the only maintainace loan I get?? (I am aware of the tuition fees paid for and bursary) from what I can understand a reduced rate maintenance loan is a bad thing, can someone please clear this up for me, I'm finding the applying to university process very confusing!!

This is correct. If you are on an NHS funded course we can offer a reduced rate maintenance loan as you also get funding through the NHS. It is a lower loan than students who only receive funding from ourselves.
