    Hi,

    So I have just applied for student finance for tuition and maintenance loan. It asked me if I wanted to apply for maintenance loan AND higher maintenance loan.

    What is the difference?

    I think I will be eligible for higher rates, but how much will I get to live on if living at home?

    I'm confused now as I didn't know there was 2! :/

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Everyone who meets the criteria, is entitled to a non-income assessed part of the maintenance loan. There's a smaller chunk which is based on your household income.
