    message them and ask if you're not sure.

    Grants are usually non repayable, do you get help with your fees/option of a full loan as a result of being income assessed? If you do then it is pretty certainly a grant (ie free money).

    i've never needed to log onto the website before but i fancied a look. i enter my art id in and it says as you have never visited before you need to create a password. there are then 3 boxes - the first one asks me to put my current password in and then the other 2 ask me to put my new password in. thing is i don't have a current password and it won't let me continue.

    i went to the problems signing in bit but it only comes up with a phone number and i can't be bothered really!

    anyone shed any light? :)

    You will have been given a default password and id when you first signed up for a loan. Try and find some old letters from them it may be on there.
    Otherwise you will probably have to ring them up.
