I posted this in a different sub-forum as I didn't realise there was one dedicated to the OU (easy to see I'm a newbie, then, ha), and hopefully I'm more likely to get a response in this sub-forum!
I'm in the process of applying registering for two new modules towards my BA with the OU. Last time, I was entitled to financial support, and my income has not changed greatly since then (and I'm personally under the earning cap to receive aid), however my living arrangements have.
Previously, I was still living at home with my parents, so only my income was contributing to household income, and it was made clear in the information that I didn't need to include the income of my parents. However I'm now living with two friends, but they are literally only housemates (ie I'm not in relationships with either of them, we don't pool our incomes or support each other financially aside from splitting rent and utility bills).
So, long story short, do I need to declare the income of my housemates too when applying, or just my own?
If it's against the rules of TSR to re-post this, I apologise, I couldn't figure out how to delete the last thread I started in a different sub-forum.
Ta in advance to anyone that can help (:
