I applied for this online but I can't seem to find how u apply for a maintenance loan ??? I have a gov student account but there is no mention of how to apply for help with maintenance.

    There might be a bursary from the college. But student finance don't offer maintenance loans for level 3 courses.

    As above, you don't. Whatever calculator told you that is mistaken.

    Hi Junglistiqdj,

    You would not be entitled to any maintenance support with your advanced learning loan.

    You may apply to get money from the Loan Bursary Fund after you've received your loan approval.

    The money can help pay for things like:
    • Accommodation and travel
    • Course materials and equipment
    • Childcare
    • Classroom assistance for a disability or learning difficulty - once you’re assessed by your college or training provider

    This is something you need apply to your college or training provider, each one will have its own application process. How much the customer can get depends on the provider’s scheme and your circumstances.

    I hope this helps

    Thanks Rona
