Students can expect to receive their first instalments of their non repayable maintenance grant funding from November 2020 once universities have confirmed to the NHS Business Services Authority that eligible students have commenced their studies for the 2020/21 academic year. As with student loan payments, the new maintenance grant funding will be phased over the academic year and will be paid in three equal instalments. This will provide students with a consistent flow of funding throughout their academic year. The NHS Business Services Authority will publish guidance for students as soon as possible.
