There are uni fees, yes, but they're considerably reduced.

Usually you wouldn't take out a maintenance loan as you will be paid for your placement, it would be unusual not to be paid a £15k+ unless you're working outside the UK. Unpaid placements are a grey area, tending towards illegal, in the UK, so they're rarely offered. You can get the loan if you do an unpaid placement however.

You can live in student accommodation though whether this is realistic will depend on the location of your placement. Many companies will have suitable accommodation available for you however.
