This may sound really stupid, but if I apply for Student finance as a independent student, not dependent on my parents using my own income- can I still get the maintenance grant ??
you satisfy their definition of independent presumably?
Ie away from home for 3 years or over 25.
SFE won't buy that I'm afraid.
Just been alerted to this. You can be under 25, living with parents and still be independent. We'd heard rumours of it being declined, but having knowledge of a test case done, it was proven they weren't, no questions asked.
