Final year of study
You'll receive a lower Maintenance Loan than in previous years.
In any year other than your final year we'll consider the period between academic years as a period during which you'll require student finance, as you're a continuing student.
At the end of your final year you are no longer a continuing student, so any time beyond the end of your final academic year is not considered eligible for student finance. This means you'll get less Maintenance Loan in your final year.
It's important that you factor this into your final year finances.
