    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!!

    Hi hannah_frost

    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.
