Hi, I am on a non-compulsory 12 month overseas placement, the compulsory placement must be 30 weeks and 3 days. A friend of mine has the exact same conditions and was granted the extra weeks funding, but I wasn't. How is this calculated and how can I apply?

Hi 07Laurajane07,

If I can just ask a quick question it should help me advise you.

What type of placement are you doing? (Hospital, health sector etc...).

Is it a paid placement?

Thank you,

John.

Hi Laura,

Thanks very much for answering that.

I have 1 more question sorry, have you been given a figure for your maintenance loan?

If so, how much have you been awarded?

Thanks again,

John.

Hi Laura,

Thanks again for answering those questions.

Normally if you're on a full year paid placement, you're only entitled to a reduced rate maintenance loan and we wouldn't award the extra weeks funding. I'd recommend getting in touch with us on Facebook or Twitter, someone there will be able to access your account and make sure we definitely have the correct details. It may be worthwhile having your friend contact us as well as it sounds like they're in a similar situation.

Kind regards,

John.
