Don't live with parent-does their income count against me?

    Hi,

    I live on my own with a partner in a separate property to my Dad, but I still have contact with him. Student finance have asked for his income and other details.

    His income is over the grant threshold, however my household income isn't-does this affect the amount I can get in student loans and mean I won't get a grant?

    Thanks.

    Unless you are 25 or over, married, are a parent or have been supporting yourself financially for 3 years (earning £7500+ each year, with proof of this) then you will have to be assessed off your parents income.

    My Dad's now refusing to fill in the form because he thinks it's a stupid system :s

    I've tried to put it as having more contact with my Dad, put when he tries to register to give evidence it puts him at my address and can't change it :s

    Is there anything I can do??

    Call student finance...easiest way to explain the situation to them and see what they say about that.
