Can I get a maintenance loan?

A maintenance loan is a means-tested loan that helps to cover your living costs.  How much you receive depends on your household (parents’, family or spouse’s) income. To find out what that means, visit gov.uk here.

How much you’ll receive is also dependant on:

  • The university or college you are studying at
  • Your course
  • If you’ve studied a higher education course before
  • Your age
  • Your nationality or residency status

The rules sometimes change so to help you figure it out, use the Government student finance website.

If you feel your assessment is wrong or have any other questions, just call into LUU Advice for a chat.
