    Hi Victoria, this depends with regards to the type of placement and time spent at the placement. Can you provide further details, where this is, if it is paid and for how long?

    With regards to moving, are you currently living in the parental home or your own home? Do you live in London or elsewhere in the UK. thanks

    It's an industry placement as part of my course, paid, from about April 2017 till September 2018 when I go back for my final year. Also, I live elsewhere in U.K., currently with parents but want to move into accommodation closer to my placement for my placement year.

    You will be assessed just as normal as your placement is paid and over 10 weeks. With regards to accommodation, you will be assessed at the elsewhere rate instead of living at home rate, this will result in higher funding. thanks
