    Hello,

    My boyfriend would like to start Level 3 Diploma in Joinery in his local college from this September.He is currently working full time, but will have to change to part time, as the course is three days per week.

    Can he apply for the student finance to cover tuition fee? We do not know how much the course costs yet.

    And can he apply for the maintenance loan?

    He will be 21 in October. Attended college Level 2 in 2014/2015, and then started full time work.

    He would have to do a level 4 course to get a maintenance loan so i m afraid he can't. It would be best to contact the college to ask how funding will work.
