    Hi

    The amount a student will receive will depend on your placement type and when/where the placement takes place.

    Can I ask you a few questions to help you better ?

    Is it unpaid work placement in a hospital, health or Local Authority, prison or probation sector ?

    Can you advise is it paid or unpaid and will it last for the full year ?

    Is your placement at home or abroad, if abroad is it at a university abroad ?

    Thanks Rona

    Hi Rona,

    It is not until next year but I am worrying about it from now.

    It will not be in the sector you mentioned and I am not sure if it’s paid or unpaid. It will definitely be in the U.K. for one year.

    Can you give me the scenarios for paid and unpaid please.

    Thank you.

    Hi Tolkien too much,

    If you are undertaking a placement year, whether paid or unpaid, in the UK or abroad, under the current 2017 funding, you will be entitled to a Reduced Rate Maintenance Loan, it's about 50% of the normal maintenance loan, dependant on where you will be living during your placement.


    Thanks Rona
