Hi, can someone help me. I'm looking at attending Lancaster Uni for social work 2020. Undergraduate.

I am trying to figure out how to go about all this when the time comes but no one has actually told us anything other than to go on ucas. It makes me wonder how I'm meant to apply for loans.

I recently read that I may be eligible for the social work bursary but have also read that it means you don't get a matinence loan so I'm a little confused.

Any help is appreciated 💜👑

1. If you are applying for the course you use UCAS.

Deadline is 15 January 2020
2. If you are applying for loans then I believe its normal student loan plus bursary on top.

Hello,
Don't worry about your loans for now, first you apply to unis through UCAS and wait to get offers. Then once you've received some offers you apply for loans through SFE - I would suggest applying for the full tuition loan and whatever maintenance you can get (for now!). SFE is separate from unis & UCAS, your uni only confirms you're actually there in October but that's it! They use your circumstances to determine how much money you'll get. You apply for your loans before you know you're definitely going to uni so it's important to do it (I believe the deadline is in May) whereas you won't get any bursaries until you're guaranteed on a course so you'll be doing that a little later on. Usually a bursary means you don't need a maintenance loan as oppose to not getting one but it's best to contact admissions for your course ([email protected] ac.uk), but in general bursaries aren't paid until January.
Hope this isn't too confusing and let me know if you have anymore questions,
