Hi there,

I can't find this information anywhere.

I studied 1 year at Bristol, and 3 years at Bristol. I received Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans for all 4 years in total.

I want to study a PGCE/Teacher Training course this September. I will not apply for a Maintenance Loan, but can I still apply for a Tuition Fee Loan? Or is 4 years the maximum amount of Tuition Fee Loans I can receive?

Thanks!

PGCE funding is independent of previous study. You could have 10 years of undergraduate study and still get PGCE funding.

Why wouldn’t you apply for a maintenance loan? If you’re expecting to be a teacher then you’re unlikely to repay your loans - so the size of your loans won’t affect the amount you repay.

Do you think I should go back and ask for a maintenance loan?

It's because I'll be recieving a bursary/scholarship of £24,000/£26,000 because I'll be teaching Mathematics in secondary schools, so I figured I didn't need it. I'm not a massive spender either.

I could perhaps take the loan and use it in case of a rainy day I guess.
