I have a twin and we're both going university next year together. It's really expensive to send 2 kids to uni at the same time that we have to stay in our county to study and live at home and we can't go away, are there any bursaries available to us?

any help appreciated

I don't think so, my brother is a year younger than me, but we applied to uni at the same time, no bursaries. At the end of the day, you are siblings.

Nope just student loans or grants (if you're eligible)

Student finance make an allowance for that in a deduction off parental income.

Why would there be exactly? :confused: You can get more support if your parents are below certain thresholds in household income, but I don't see why both of you going to uni at the same time requires each of you to be given more money?

SFE reduce parental income roughly by £1k for each sibling attending university.

Bursaries on based on household income.

You will still get the same student finance as anybody else. Having more than one child at uni at once isn't an uncommon situation, and SFE already do a great job in opening up education to people who wouldn't otherwise be able to benefit from it.

If you're short of money, like many students are, you will have to get a part time job.

You may get a scholarship, which is generally based on academics.

Why was my reply to the ignorant and incorrect nonsense in post 9 removed?

This forum won't be worth a light if such uninformed drivel is allowed to continue unchallenged.

Not just because your going to university. Student finance knock a small ammount off for dependant siblings if they are means testing but this assumes your household income is below the income threshold, otherwise there is nothing extra.
