Hi I’ve just received a unconditional at Birmingham city university however I’m a little worried about if student finance is going to cover both my tuition fee and accomodation..

The course is £6900 and most accommodation prices are around £4000-5000 a year which means I would have to partly fund this myself.

Is £10,000 the maximum you get for finance? And how does it get paid does it get paid in 3 instalments? (Tuition fee to the university and the remainder to me) do you get a maintenance fee and grant? Or do you have to pay for these seperatley?

Could you give me a better explanation as I’m very confused.

Thanks, amber.

Hi AMBERROSE,
If you are applying for a Postgraduate Loan (PGL) it is a one time only product of up to £10,000. Student Finance would pay this directly to you in 3 installments per academic year to cover living costs and tuition fees and you would then arrange with your university how you would pay the fees directly to them.


Thanks

Louise
