I’m studying medicine, going into my second year which is supposed to be 36 weeks (I heard someone say you can get more loan if your course is longer). I know the maximum maintenance loan is £8944, but I’ve been offered £9520. I’m studying outside of London. So I’m a bit confused over the amount as I know it’s more than the maximum, has anyone had experience with this or knows why I’m getting more?

Thanks

Hi,

If your term dates are longer than the standard course length of 30 weeks and 3 days then we can give you additional Maintenance Loan for being on a long course. This is based on your household income and living location during the academic year.

Thanks, Tégan
