    Can i apply for just the maintenance loan but pay my course fees myself?

    if so would I be too late to apply now?

    I am fine for paying the course fees but would like to take the loan just as a safety measure

    Yes you can take one without the other. You would put 0 in the amount requested for tuition fees. You can apply for the maintainance loan, however you are too late to be guaranteed to receive it during your first week of uni.*

    If i do get the loan do the check what you use it on? as I am already paying my rent but I would like the money for safety in case my parents can't suddenly pay my rent.

    Just out of curiosity, why do you want to fund tuition fees yourself?

    They don't check what you spend it on. Once it hits your account, it's yours to spend as you wish.

    That's respectable however would it not be cheaper to take out the loan? I'd strongly consider it if I were you - it's the best loan you'll ever get!
