    Hi Guys,

    Sorry for being extremely nosey but I was just wondering the different amounts you receive each month from SAAS in bursaries.

    I've just recieved my award notice and it's not as much as I thought considering I will be paying my own living costs hours away from home. Is this a stark welcome to student life or could I be entitled to more? Thanks.

    What did you apply for?

    If your in a low income household you can get £7,625, for everyone else their parents are expected to make up the shortfall (the maximum for a household earning £34,000 or above is £4,750). The full breakdown is here.

    My parents put me in the £4,750 bracket but barely gave me anything so that was rough while I was at uni but there is emergency funding (its from the government so every uni gets it) if you find yourself really struggling to make ends meet.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
