    Hi

    I am trying to find a Student Finance calculator (like the one here) that I can use for courses starting in 2013/14. The one linked says that it is only applicable for courses starting in 2015/16 or 2016/17, for which I am led to believe have different student finance settlements (i.e. no maintenance grant).

    Is there a way to calculate student finance for courses starting earlier than this?

    Thanks!

    They normally remove the calculators after a certain point, are you trying to calculate your entitlement for 3rd year?

    It's my final year, after a placement year, so fourth.

    As a general rule, you could expect £300 or so less than previous years as it's not meant to cover the summer term otherwise unless your household income has changed it should be similar to previous years.

    "Summer holiday" rather than "summer term" I think?

    You're covered until the end of your course, which is usually after your last exams in May/June (depending on how your course is organised). In your first and second years, your third SF installment is intended to help you through the summer. The last payment of your third year will be lower as it covers a period of three or four months less than those of previous years.

    I don't know why I wrote term, long day should really be more carefully proof reading things :P
