    I was on a work placement outside of the EU (not Erasmus) for my sandwich year for 8 months (July 2015 - March 2016) for the academic year 2015/16 - for this I received around £2400 in student finance. Then in April 2016 I went on an Erasmus work placement instead, I receive the 400eur monthly grant and SFE gave me an extra £5600, bringing my total SFE for the year to around £8000.

    My question is, what is the minimum duration for an Erasmus work placement to quality for Student Finance? I read it could be 24 weeks, but if anyone has any experience please share!

    Thank you

    There is no minimum duration however you will be assessed based on the duration being less or more than 10 weeks.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
