    I have to resit my second teaching placement and the maintenance loan entitlement is not enough to cover my rent, travel and daily living expenses. I was originally granted the full amount but when the university finally got back with my placements details my loan was reevaluated and I am recieving less than half of the full loan. I can't get a job because a pgce is the same as having a full time position and it was working last time which contributed to me having to resit my placement.

    Hi Higginsl12,

    The funding can differ depending on the details of the placement, such as, if it's paid/unpaid, how long you'll be at the university, the type of placement etc...

    It may be worthwhile contacting us on Facebook or Twitter, where someone can access your account directly and make sure the entitlement is definitely correct.

    Kind regards,

    John.
