    Why do so many of these internationals apply to Oxbridge without thinking whether they can afford it or not?

    Where does OP say they are international? They refer to the maintenance loan which would strongly indicate they are a home applicant.

    Does anyone know how much I can expect to receive as student loan and maintenance loan if I'm from a low income background.
    My mum doesn't work, my dad earns around 26k per year and I have a big family
    Go to https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-calculator

    Depending on your specific circumstances you could get per year:
    £9,250 Tuition Fee Loan to pay for your course
    £8,309 Maintenance Loan to pay living costs

    And note my earlier reply

    The argument is still the same
