    Community Assistant
    I wanted to post this and clear it up as I've seen some users telling over 60's that they wouldn't get funding.

    From 16/17 and beyond
    Anyone who wishes to study and is over 60 CAN get maintenance loan and tuition fees.

    What you can get
    You can get a means tested maintenance loan and tuition fees
    Maximum maintenance loan of £3469
    Minimum maintenance loan of £50

    How to apply
    Either paper form from here http://media.slc.co.uk/sfe/1617/ft/s...orm_1617_d.pdf


    Online by going here

    It's good to see that over 60s are now eligible for some sort of Maintenance Loan, even if it's only a nominal sum compared to under 60s.
