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
