Been reading up about living on the money I will get from the maintenance loan. I have read a lot of people saying they get grants on top of their maintenance loan, rising their yearly total to like 7k? How do I look into this? im very confused as I have had no help looking into any of this so my question might sound utterly stupid.

There are no grants now for English students. It's all loans.

This is the official calculator, which will give you an estimate of your entitlement based on your circumstances:

As Tiger Rag says, English students no longer get grants but the Maintenance Loan has increased.

As stated by others there is no longer a grant. Just a loan. The maximum loan is £8200 and about £10800 inside of London.
Just google student finance and you should be able to get more information.

Here are some links to help.

Your university may offer grants though so look into that

You will get a means tested maintenance loan (based on household income) and then your student loan (which goes straight to the university). Some courses like teaching and medicine (i think) can get a bit extra maintenance loan because of the high costs associated with the course, but this too will be decided by student finance if you are eligible. In terms of grants and bursaries, your should check with your university, as they often have pages on their websites to explain their bursaries,etc. and what is needed for you to be eligible.
Hope that helps!

No matter your household income, you can get a maintenance loan of about £4000. You can also apply for extra maintenance loan. How much extra maintenance loan you qualify for is based on your household income and where you are studying (if you are living away from home and in London while you study, you qualify for more). So if someone's maintenance loan is £7k, then they were eligible for £3k extra based on their household income.

Quite a few unis also offer income based bursaries. If you shared this information with the uni via student finance, you might automatically qualify for a bursary.
