Could someone clarify/verify if this is true with regrads to grant/loan/bursary Watch

    My parents have been stating a point that the government can 'give' you £3000 for you to study at university, and backing up by claiming a son of his friend did it; my landlord is also saying something similar... but I am not sure since there are quite a lot of questions remaining, e.g conditions? Surely the government won't accept every application or it would be infeasible(10000 UK students = 1 billion pounds?). i have been searching for key words on the internet, such as £3000 grant/loan/bursary/accommodation and found not much about it, since I don't even know what form of finance support it would be.

    So may I ask if anyone may clarify this for me and that would be amazing! Thank you so much for your attention as well!

    Not heard of such a thing.

    You can get bursaries from your uni if you're from a low income. These vary from uni to uni. And there are scholarships.

    Every student who is from England is entitled to a loan of at least around £3800 for living costs plus £9000 for tuition fees. Maybe that's what they mean?

    Thank you so much for your reply! Do you need to pay back the money as other loans if your income exceeds certain limit?
