Hi! I’m gonna be doing a placement year in London, and when applying for student finance i was told I’d be offered £2874 maintenance loan as I’ll be earning a salary. My application has been approved, but I’ve been offered £4053. Is this because I’ll be in London? Will I receive a letter at the end of the year ordering me to pay some of it back?

Are you sure that you ticked the box to state that you’ll be on placement for all 3 terms?

80% sure. I’ve been trying to check, but the website is down constantly…

Hi!

I think it's best to contact student finance on the telephone. You usually get things like this clarified straight away and will save the worry about paying back more money.

Thanks, I’ll do this!

I just checked my application, and i put I’ll be on placement for all 3 terms.

What’s weird, is that I’ve been offered more than the standard for placement students, but less than the minimum for regular students. Thanks for the suggestion!
