The Maintenance Loan is part of your Student Finance Tuition Fee Loan application. There are 2 types of maintenance, there is a non means tested loan (which means you are not assessed on household income) this will give you a standard amount of just over £4000 per year or there is a means tested loan (which means you are assessed on household income) and this will give you anything up to £11000 per year depending on where you live and study. If you have applied and received confirmation but are yet to receive it, this may be because we have not confirmed your registration with Student Finance England, it could also be that Student Finance England need more information from you. You can contact them on 0300 100 0607.
