    Hi all,

    So I'm currently studying a UG degree, and will finish Year 1 in the Summer. I will be starting Year 2 in September, but am confused as to what happens with student finance?

    I receive assessed finance against my parents' household income, and a bursary from the university itself which I think SLC give them the necessary info for.

    Do I need to reapply? Is this automatic? I'm worried as it says on the SLC/Direct Gov site that they were writing to people end of Feb?

    Thanks

    yes you do need to reapply- to do that you need to go onto your account and follow the steps on there. then they will send you a declaration which you need to sign and send back

    Thanks.

    I have a question - I've just done this and my parents have entered their income, but my grant has been reduced by about £700, when their income was only £2,000 higher than in 09-10. Would this make this much difference, surely?

    It seems like a much lower amount for next year

    That does sound like too big a decrease- I wouldn't have expected it to go down by more than £300 at most. All I can say is ring SF.
