    Hi, my son is now submitting his application for his second year of finance at uni and has gone through the first 2 sections of his reapplication. On reaching the third section about living costs it gives an information box at the top (before clicking yes to applying for maintenance loan) which states that you may get up to £3820 for a maintenance loan. I am baffled at this amount as I do not understand why it is so low. He will be living in halls and has no overseas or work placements. He is doing an ordinary course with no nhs / medical etc links, in Birmingham. He was awarded almost £5000 last year as a loan. I don't understand why it says up to this much lower figure, before we have even submitted my income as a parent. Pic attached (no personal info visible)
    Any ideas please?

    Hi fifidi

    There could be a few reasons why the funding is showing as lower such as living location, showing final year of course, requested to be income assessed.

    I would advise him to call so we can check his application: 0300 100 0607

Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
