    I wonder if anyone can help me...

    I've been looking at living costs and speaking with my parents and I'm a bit worried about living costs. Whilst I know most universities offer bursaries I'm pretty sure my family isn't eligible for any ( joint wage of +42,000 which is the cut off for most, if not all, assistance ).

    I may be able to afford a fair amount of first year if I save but I worry for the future where I'll be studying.

    Any advice would be greatly received,

    Everyone is entitled to a minimum SF Maintenance Loan, regardless of household income. You can get an idea of your entitlement by using the SF calculator:
    https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-c...e-of-the-above

    According to that, with a household income of £42000, studying outside London and not living at home, you would get £6198 a year under the current SF rules.

    Didn't know that, thanks for the reply! Do you know if you repay that loan under the same circumstances as a tuition fee loan ( that is when you start earning a certain amount )?

    Yes. It's all considered part of the same single loan.
