Im going to be starting my second year of study int he summer, and my boyfriend and I are planning on renting a flat together. He's not at uni, but when I apply for a student loan through SAAS, do I say that i'm single, or living with a partner?
I should get a bursary either way, but if I put myself down as the wrong thing it'll be a ballache.

You either say you are living with a partner and you get income assessed off their income (i.e. their student loan, bursary etc and vice versa). Or you say you are single and still get assessed off your parental income.
Most people tend to say living with their partner as it means essentially they get more money (don't forget if this money is a loan it's more you pay back in the future). Unless your parents have a low income, which means you probably get the full support already, and either way it would make no difference what you pick.
