Hello, I am resident in UK, originally from Lithuania. I have been working and paying taxes in London for the past 5 years. I hold an international baccalaureate in business. In September 2016 I am starting a foundation degree in 3d design. I would like to know if I am entitled for both tuition fee loan and maintenance loan?

Hello,

Applications for the 16/17 Academic Year are available from March 2016, your son would need to make an application to get his actual Maintenance Loan amount however there is a Student Finance Calculator, the link for this is below, which will give you an estimate of the funding available.

https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-calculator

Thank you.

Hi there

I would advise that the evidence they can both send will be dependent on what they receive ie Benefits. We ask for any taxable income to be declared on their applications. If the income they have is non taxable we will not need any evidence. There are guidance notes for the PFF2 which your parents can refer to when completing their applications.

Many Thanks
Margaret

Hi

My mum is working with Step Change to help her get out of the financial difficulty she currently faces due to the divorce from my father. I was wondering if I would need to put this on my application and what evidence I would need to show it?

Hello, if I'm 20 when applying for the loan, is it still based from parents' earnings, as I'm still dependant on them, anyhow?

Hello,

If the degree that you hold from Lithuania is at the same level or higher then the funding you would receive is limited as you already hold a qualification.

If you were to contact NARIC they would convert your qualification that you received in Lithuania to what it would be here in the UK. This can be done before starting an application.

For further information on the funding that would be available to you contact our Student Finance England help line on 0300 100 0607.

Many Thanks

Hello,

If a student is under the age of 25 when assessing their student finance we would class them as dependent.

This means that we would use your parent/parent's financial details who lived in the house hold to assess what funding you would be entitled to.

The application's for 16/17 are due to be released in March 2016 and if you need any further information please contact our Student Finance England help line on 0300 100 0607.

Many Thanks

Hello,

For a sponsor application our guidelines are that we take full taxable income when assessing the Student's funding, we can't take outgoings in to account so all students are treated equally. If the income has dropped we can reassess on a Current Year Income basis using a Current Year Income form available on the gov.uk website.

Thank you.

Marital Evidence: If your parents have separated and no longer living together, we will require evidence from your parent who will be supporting your application. The evidence can be from the following list:

Students/Sponsors from England, Wales and Northern Ireland can send:
  • Decree Nisi
  • Most recently dated Council tax bill showing 25% single person occupancy discount (SFE & SFW only)
  • Solicitors letter confirming separation
  • A Signed Affidavit - a sworn declaration they make in writing describing facts that they wish to state as true. They typically make an Affidavit under oath and sign it and have it stamped by a Solicitor.
  • Statutory declaration - normally drafted by a Solicitor who is usually a Notary Public or can be drafted a a Legal Executive authorised to administer Oaths. Alternatively, the declaration can be made before a Magistrate (also known as a Justice of the Peace) or some Magistrates Clerks at a Magistrates Court.

Sorry, me again. What is a sponsor application?
Income hasn't dropped for my mum. The issue is she has very little to live on.
