    Could you tell me why my loan for 2016/17 is only £3553 when the last 2 years it has been the minimum without parental income. My brothers has come through for the minimum amount of £3821.

    Student loans include a proportion to cover your living costs for the Summer. When you're in your final year the student loan doesn't include this extra so drops down (because you'll be able to work (or claim benefits) from the day of your final exam).

    Thanks for that, I can't believe I've not seen that anywhere before, it isn't well documented when you take the loans out.
