Hi all, this is my first time making a question on here, I'm looking for help..

I'm 22, and returning to education, currently waiting on doing my 2 year long Level 3 course.

My college told me last year whilst I was on my Level 2 course that I can't apply for SFE until I'm on a Level 3 or higher course, I emailed the college I am attending asking for the Funding and Information sheet (I think it's called?) last month, and they replied 2 weeks later saying they have no idea what this letter is, I explained what it entails and they then said that I have no need to go through SFE as my course is fully funded for me, I explained to them that I need to be able to, so I can obtain a maintenance loan they again avoided my request and replied with the same thing. The reason why I don't want to go through them for a bursary is because they only gave me £60 a month MAXIMUM, this did not even cover the costs of my fuel monthly. I currently don't work, and don't have any form on income, hence why I need the maintenance loan.

Does anyone have any advice, or a way that I can obtain the needed information?

I don't think there is a maintenance loan for level 3, just the college fees.

Is there anything else that I can possibly claim for help with maintenance. As I said some weeks I find it hard to even attend college because of lack of petrol.

There are no maintenance grants for Level 3 college courses, so you may have to get a part time job whilst at college. This should give you enough money to get by. Your college MAY have some sort of local funding for learners in need, but this won't be a lot. Rather than do a Level 3 course, why don't you ask the college if there are any Level 3 apprenticeships available. That way you will learn and gain a certificate (and valuable work experience) and earn money at the same time.
