    Is it possible to get maintenance grant without taking the maintenance loan? I plan to take the loan to pay the fee but is it possible to obtain the maintenance grant with this option only?

    No. I don't think so. But take the loan put it in a bank until you have to pay it back. You'll get some pocket money from the interest.

    You can obtain the maintenance grant without taking out the loan. Just don't tick the box for the maintenance loan, and complete the financial information part of the application.

    I thought there was no interest on it while at uni? Just the value changes in line with inflation?

    its like 1.5 interest from the first month off getting the student loan, always worrying when you get that letter at the end of the first year saying how much you have to pay back already :s:, but that could of changed again

    you don't start paying it back till you earn over £15k a year

    it was at 1.5% so not much rubbish really , and why quote on a post that coming up to 2 month old, times change, the SCL set that rate this month, and that post was in july, your clearly missing that, they also set any loans before 1998 as -0.4%

    Every September the SLC’s annual interest rates for the next academic year are set. These are based on the inflation rate
