    Hi, Student finance have just told me I am only entitled to a reduced amount of maintenance loan. They said because its unpaid but not in a hospital or prison I cant get any more even though it is through the erasure + scheme.
    They said I cannot get a grant because I get the above.
    It seems I am worse off going abroad than staying home studying.

    Can anyone help please

    Hi,

    I would advise that you pop into The Hub in the main building and have a chat with our staff. they should be able to give you some advice in relation possible funding routes for international study.

    Best of luck

    Hi, Just a note to say that I did get it checked with Aston having been told twice and having it reassessed that I was not entitled to anymore.

    Aston says that there has been a huge mix up this year with loads not getting their entitlement. Can this be put up on Aston's website because it took me loads of searching and looking and reading and I know that some people may not even question this.

    I'm so glad I did, please recheck yours, whatever uni your at as the problem is with Student finance.

    Thank you, please pass on and share
