Independent student ?

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I'll be 22 next year when I go to University. I have supported myself financially for 5 years even though I live at home with parents who have a very good yearly income. Am I right in thinking when applying for Independent Student that the household income does not become involved? Just my own wage? I have all the proof and I will be using three years worth of P60's. Thanks. X

    As far as I'm aware that's all they ask for.
    However, you're not fully independent as you still live at home so you'd have to enquire about that.

    You would not be classed as independent as you live with your parents.
