    Hello, so I initially applied for a maintenance loan, and was asked to send proof of my parents income which I did, and on a quote it said that I should be entitled to more. However, I've looked on my student finance account and I'm only entitled to £3800, and my first payment is only of £1,260 which is being paid on the 19/09. But, my rent is due on the 26th which is over £2000, and I will not be able to come up with almost an extra £1000 that quickly, and I'm really anxious about this now. Help, anyone?

    Call SFE to check that they've done your income assessment and that your maintenance loan amount isn't going to change. If they're still assessing then the amount you receive may increase.

    Otherwise you'll need to look into alternate sources of money - make sure you've got the best student bank account and overdraft you can, speak to your university about hardship grants and loans (and if you're in university accommodation see if you can switch to somewhere cheaper) and any bursaries you might be eligible for and try to get part time work ASAP.
