    Ok, so i understand about getting a student loan for tuition fees. easy, i can get it.
    BUT, the maintenance loan is apparently based on household income?

    now...my parents earn quite alot, so if its completely based on that then im probably not going to be eligable for a loan, but my parents just DONT have enough money to support me themselves, eventhough they earn so much- it goes on the house, car etc. they've probably not even got enough to help me for just a month of living costs, theyre that skint.

    so basically what do i do? is there anyway of getting a good maintenance loan eventhough my household income is very high??? please, any advice is appreciated!!!

    Only part of the maintenance loan is income assessed, while the tuition fee loan is not dependent on your household income at all. Don't worry!

    Edit: For a more specific answer, 75% of the maintenance loan is non-income-assessed (72% for students starting courses in 2009).
