We will be updating this page on a daily basis with the questions asked within our live Q&A sessions.
If you are a prospective student and have an urgent query regarding student funding, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q. Is there funding available for Graduate Entry Medicine?
A. Yes, Graduate Entry Medicine students can apply for a Tuition Fee and Maintenance Loan from the SLC in the same way as applied as an undergraduate. This course is exempt from the usual "no previous study" rules relating to finance. Please see here for further information.
Q. What is the application process for the Warwick Bursary?
A. Once you have applied for your Tuition Fee Loan and means-tested Maintenance Loan from Student Finance England, we are notified by SFE if your household income is under the £35,001 bursary threshold. We then check some further criteria and notify you if you are eligible for the Warwick Bursary. Further information can be found here.
Q. How much Maintenance Loan will I receive?
A. The amount of Maintenance Loan you receive is dependent on the household income of whomever you are ordinarily resident with, and where you plan to live whilst studying. You can use the Student Finance Calculator here to establish how much you may be eligible for.
Q. What scholarships does the university offer?
A. A list of scholarships administered by the Student Funding Team can be found here, along with the eligibility criteria for each.
Q. Is it common to work during term time at Warwick and is there time to?
A. Many students do choose to work alongside studying. It will depend on the intensity of your course as to whether you have the time to work, but we would suggest speaking with your department and student ambassadors to establish this.
Q. What are the requirements to apply for a scholarship?
A. All of the scholarships that are administered by Student Funding are listed here. All of these scholarships have different eligibilty criteria and application processes, so you will need to check these to see if you can apply.
Q. I live in Wales. Where do I apply to for Student Finance?
A. Welsh students should apply to Student Finance Wales - https://www.studentfinancewales.co.uk/
Q. What happens if I don't spend all of my Maintenance Loan?
A. If at the end of the academic year you find you haven't needed all of the loan you have taken, you can consider requesting less for the next academic year. Although Student Finance England will let you know the maximum Maintenance Loan you are eligible for, you don't have to take the full amount.
Q. Can you pay back your loan at a greater rate than the amounts being taken out of your salary?
A. You can choose to make extra repayments towards your student loan. These would be in addition to the repayments you must make when your income is over the threshold amount. However, you should only make extra repayments if you think you can pay off the full balance before the loan term ends. This is because your loan will be written off at the end of the term (currently 30 years). Check here for further information - https://www.gov.uk/repaying-your-student-loan/make-extra-repayments
