Hi,
Question 1.
For how many years, in total, can a student apply and receive the tuition fee loan?

Say, the student receives a loan for a 2 year higher education course (A level equivalent course). Can they then go on and receive a loan for 3 year undergraduate course?

Question 2.
Can a student receive a maintenance loan if they have not applied for
or received a tuition fee loan?

Many thanks,

Dad of student

Hi Strontium,

A level equivalent courses are classed as 'Further Education' rather than 'Higher Education' and as such don't affect a students entitlement to funding for undergraduate courses.

And yes, if they are eligible for funding they can request just the Maintenance Loan. There's no requirement to take the Tuition Fee Loan as well. (And vice versa)

Regards,

Stuart

Hi Strontium,

Only previous study at the higher education level may be considered when assessing student's entitlement to finance. This will depend on whether they studied full-time or part-time and if they received a qualification.

Previous study at A - levels will do not count as previous study and is not taken into account.

Tuition Fee The maximum amount of tuition fee loan available will be £9,250 for student studying as a public institution. Students studying at a private institution can apply for a maximum loan of £6,165.

Maintenance Loan You can check how much you will be entitled to receive, on the Student Finance Calculator, here is a linkhttp://bit.ly/1eWRiXJA student may request both the maintenance loan and the tuition fee loan on the application and has the option to choose one and not the other.For information and how to apply, please go to http://bit.ly/1hErcvLThanks Rona

Hi Strontium,

The current period of study where your son is receiving an Advanced Learning Loan, will not affect his future entitlement.

You can be confident that he will be eligible for full support for the length of his undergraduate cours.

The Advanced Learner Loan is only for the tuition fee, there is no support for living costs.

Your son may apply to get money from the Loan Bursary Fund after he has received the 'Advanced Learner Loan' approval.

He would apply directly to his college or training provider, each one will have its own application process.
How much the student can get depends on the provider’s scheme and your circumstances.

Thanks Rona
