    If you are a current student, yes otherwise either the websites haven't been updated or they are referring to grants the university offers themselves

    If you are starting in Academic Year 16/17, then the majority of grants have been replaced with enhanced repayable loans. I do believe Child Care Grant (CCG) will be still be considered a grant, but I'm unsure how the other Grant for Dependants (PLA, ADG) are going to be affected.

    Tiger Rag, being an insider, do you know?
