    I’ve got a confirmed place at Teesside starting September and I would like to know more about the student finance and the maintenance loan? I know that you will have to pay both back as you can’t get the NHS bursary anymore. Do you have to apply for maintenance loan? I’ll not be employment once I’m at university will the maintenance loan help with everyday living?

    Hi Beccajane22,

    Both the Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan are optional so you can take both or 1 and not the other or even just a specific amount of each loan.

    The maintenance loan is there to help with living costs, you can use the student finance calculator to get an idea of how much you'd receive. if you're under 25 we'd base the amount on your parents income, unless you met one of the criteria for being independent, here's a list of the criteria. We don't take students wages into account so your own income from employment won't affect the amount.

    I hope this information helps.

    Kind regards,

    John.
