    I am currently on a gap year and will be moving to Swindon to work for PGL next month and I am wondering how this will effect student finance? Such as my household's income as I will be living away from home, will my parents income still count?

    Yes your parents income will still count. It will only cease to count if you have fully supported yourself for 3+ years or if you can prove you are estranged from your family (which is more hassle than it is worth).

    Hi

    We will still request parents income to assess your application if you are under 25.
    You may be entitled to a higher amount of funding as you are no longer living in the parental home. Please indicate this on your application.

    Thanks
