Am I right in thinking this student finance table is incorrect? Watch

    Very confused. Just seen 2 seperate tables which show how much student finance you get.

    The one on the student finance website seems to be wrong. It says if your household income is £35000 you only get a grant of £3600. On all the other tables I've seen it's £4761.

    Why is this different to the others?

    This is the table that I thought was correct:

    Can someone please explain to me which is the right one?

    The figures look correct but for different circumstances - the student finance table seems to be for living with parents, whereas the UCLAN website table is for studying outside London and not living with parents.

    The only way to really get an accurate figure is to start your application, put in the relevant details and it should tell you how much you're entitled to once you've filled out everything.

    There is some more information on page 5 of this document: http://www.studentfinanceengland.co....she_1314_d.pdf

    I hope this helps!

    Ok I see, I won't be living with my parents so I guess it's the bottom table I need to go by. Just trying to work out what sort of accomodation I can afford.
