    If your parents collectively earn an amount higher than the lowest pay band on Student Finance then you aren't entitled to the largest loan/grant. This makes perfect sense, but what if your parents are severely in debt despite their earnings and therefore unable to support you?

    Are you entitled to anything else or is it a case of tough sh*t?

    You'll be entitled to the maintenance loan, other than that, it probably is a case of tough sh*t, sorry mate is there no way you can work a bit at uni?

    I thought as much I do want a job while I'm there but worry I won't get one (with the cr*p job market situation).

    Do you think it would help if I applied for a scholarship & mentioned the financial situation?
