    Due to unexpected circumstances I am currently living with my parents, but I am over 25 and have 2 young children. I personally consider myself and my children as our own household. Am I right in thinking that because I am over 25 I considered independent and do not need to declare my parents income?

    Also, at the moment I am staying with my parents although I consider myself homeless with the local council and am hoping to be offered social housing soon. This may or may not be before the start of my course. When I apply do I put living with parents even though I expect this to change and I am "independent"?

    And finally,what is the final deadline to apply to be sure of funding at the start of the course?

    Thank you
