You may be able to receive the King’s Living Bursary even if you are not planning on taking out a maintenance loan.

The same criteria will apply: you must be a full-time home student with a household income of £42,875 or less. You will need to have been fully means tested by Student Finance and your household income needs to have been shared with King’s. Don’t worry, if you have opted out of sharing this information with King’s, you can contact Student Finance to have this reversed.

You do not need to receive a maintenance loan to be means tested by Student Finance England. Instead, you can opt for £0.00 in the maintenance loan request page of the application.

To request to be means-tested by Student Finance England, please contact them directly on 0300 100 0607.

The bursary webpages explain how much you might be entitled to receive.
