A fixed PLO contribution of £575 for full-time undergraduate students, or £862.50 for students on a full-time postgraduate course (part-time students will receive a pro-rata amount based on the duration of the course). The purpose of this contribution is towards your placement travel expenses from term time address to placement agency. This is built into the basic grant; you are free to use the basic grant in a manner that best suits your individual circumstances. It is expected that the agency offering your placement will contribute towards the travel costs incurred while carrying out your placement duties. A contribution of this nature will not affect your entitlement to the basic grant.
