    Hi, I'm on a placement year and applied for student finance for this and have received my first payment. I realised that when i applied i stated that my placement was paid, however its an unpaid placement at a university. would i receive a higher maintenance loan if this was corrected and if so how do i go about changing it?

    Hi T378HL,

    In order for me to determine if you maybe eligible for any further funding , can you advised what year you started you course, the details of your course and what is the details of your placement at the University ?

    Thanks

    Hi, thanks for the reply. I started my degree in 2015 at the university of bath and my course is sport and exercise science with a placement year. My placement is at the university of salford with the health sciences department. I help with the running performance clinic they have here and other research thats ongoing within the department. I will receive a £1500 bursary but my supervisor advised me that i might be able to still get my full maintenance loan aswell.

    Hi T378HL,

    Based on the information that you have provided you maybe eligible for further funding if the placement that you are completing is classed as research in a UK institution.
    I would suggest that you call us to discuss this further with one of our advisors on 0300 100 0607.


    Thanks
    Louise
