Sandwich Year FinanceWatch
My course has the offer of a placement year and I was wondering how student finance works in regards to that. Would I still receive a maintenance loan to fund my living costs while working? I've been told that most placements in my industry (Fashion) are unpaid, which will mean I will have no income. Are there loans or grants that can cover this, if student finance cannot fund it?
- The length of your unpaid placement? Will you be spending any weeks at university?
- The location of your placement, such as office, government building etc
