I am currently on my gap year and I will be going to university in September.
I have been working for a few months and have saved up £2000 to date. However until September I am expected to earn around £2500/£3000 thereby making the amount of money I have saved up around £5000.
If I had £5000 in my bank account in September, would this cause me trouble for Student Finance? Would they be paying me less money and not entitling me other grants? Or does Student Finance only look at the income of your parents and base it on this?
The other thing is that when I go university, I will be working part-time during weekends, would having a part-time job affect my student finance as well?
What do you think?
