    Hi! So I am off to study at uni in September. I currently have tuition loan and welsh government learning grant covering my university fees. I have also applied for the maintenance loan. Just wondering, can I also apply for the maintenance grant with this? The amount I have is £3800 for maintenance loan and my accommodation is £5500. I am short of money as I don't want my parents having to pay a penny! So a maintenance grant would REALLY help.

    The maintenance grants were scrapped and replaced with a maintenance loan of up to 8200 or 10700 in London

    They were only scrapped for English students. Those from Wales can still apply for a grant if household income is below £50,020.

    Assuming your household income is lower than that then you need to ask to be means tested.

    Just had a look at the link! Is welsh government grant the same as maintenance grant? If so, I do have the welsh government learning grant
