    I would not like to enter my parent's details on the SFE website. I can't find a way of manipulating it so that it lets me do that, the closest option it comes up with is 'no contact with either parent', and then that just gives me a grant automatically, which I'm not eligibile for.

    To make it clear, I'm a first time student, asking for the basic £3575 maintenance loan and tuition fees, and I don't want to input my parents salary etc. Any way of doing this?

    DS & I did this without any problem.

    Not sure what we did? Am sure that there was a stage at which we were asked if wanted to take parents income into account and we just said no. DS will get the basic maintenance loan.

    I think they have the option as if you know you are going to be over the limit there really isn't any point faffing around with the figures etc.

    There is just a point where it asks if you want your parental income assessed. If you say no it'll just give you the minimum.
