    She has to link with his application on UcAS. She needs to fill in her section and be prepared to send in evidence of income if required.

    Your grandson needs to sign up to the student finance website (studentfinance.direct.gov.uk) and complete the section relating to him. His mother then needs needs to also create an account and 'support' her sons application by filling in her financial information.

    Your grandson will need to provide his passport details, or his birth certificate may need to be sent off. From his mother you will need P60 for the financial year 2011 - 2012. If no P60 is available, you can call HMRC to ask them to send a letter stating how much taxable income was earned in that financial year.
