    I've just had to fill out my form for student finance and it turns out my dad makes a whopping £349 a year. Now even by our standards that seems incredibly low so I'm starting to think I've just misread a bit of the form. Since he gets about £6000 in child tax credits, I'm just wondering whether they're meant to be included anywhere?

    Do you mean he has £349 taxable income?
    If you do they want to know his gross income.
    If he is employed it will be on his P60 if he is self employed it will be on his tax return

    Is this the student finance form or is this a separate one you need to fill in?
    Isn't that for 2013/2014 applicants?

    The one posted above is the detailed form to be completed by parents, where the student is applying for a loan based on the parents' household income. You are right, it is for students looking for finance for their 2013-14 university year.

    The euqivalent form for 2014-15 study is now available here:

    - and does not have the equivalent question to the previous year's form regarding child tax credits.
