    Hello Everyone,

    I am a EU national with British pernament residence. My parents next month will leave UK. They have waited specially for me to get older (adult) around 18-19 so I can be safely responsible for my self.

    They will leave me on my own faith without any financial support from them. This is a big step for me so I have already planned myself accomodation and eventually workplace during study year if it will be necessery.

    I have heard about Independent Student status and I would like to know if I am able to apply for that. Any kind of information about my cause will be appreciated.

    Hi Ziom,

    As you will be under 25 years old when you start your course, you will be classed as a dependent student when you apply for student finance. This means your parents would be required to declare their income if you wish to apply for means-tested/income-assessed funding.

    Please note if you are married, or have care of a child under 18 years old, you are welcome to supply evidence of this to us so we can award you funding as an independent student.

    Thanks
