Hi there,
I'm already at uni. Seeing as no one from Student Finance has replied to my facebook post and tweet, and your extortionate calling fee is too expensive, I have to barge in on this threat!

Basically I'm in the process of applying to become an exchange student abroad, and I am aware that there is a travel grant for up to 3 return flights available to me. The details of the grant aren't immediately clear to me.

Do I have to spend the first £303 for each return flight, or are all 3 return flights paid for MINUS £303? For example, if 3 return flights costed £1500 at £500 each, would I have to only spend £303 and the grant covers £1197? Or would I have to spend £909 and the grant covers £591?

Cheers

You pay the first £303 for each return flight - the grant covers the rest (unless your household income is above £39,796 in which case the amount you pay will be slightly higher.

You'll need to pay for the flights up front and then the grant will refund you by the look of things: https://www.gov.uk/travel-grants-stu...d/how-to-claim - so if your flights are around £1,500 it would probably be worth applying for a student credit card to pay with.
