I applied for Mental Health Nursing at Nottingham Trent university and have received the full amount needed for the course however my maintenance is only £3,410.00 for the year. I will be living at home and travelling to the university however I live in a single parent household and we are both on very low incomes, any idea on why my loan is so little?

Generally students living at home receive less than those living outside of their family home, if they aren't classed as independent students.

Thankyou I didn’t know that, the amount I have relieved won’t help to cover travel costs for the whole year though as well as everything else.

£3410 is the minimum maintenance loan for someone living at home, so if your parent is on a low income then something seems to have gone wrong, Did you apply for the means-tested maintenance loan, and has you/your parent given your financial details to student finance?

It could be that they'll send you another letter in a week or two, once they've processed the evidence you provided for household income, and it'll go up to the level it should be. But I'd ring them and check.
