    Sorry if this is me being stupid but I was told by someone who recieved it last year that there was something called independent students allowance for anyone who will be 25 or over when they start their course and are on a low income and are doing a postgraduate course, which I am, does that still exist or has it been cut?

    Scotland has the Independent Student Bursary for undergrads, but I'm not aware of a postgrad equivalent and I can't find online docs for SAAS which refer to 2016/17 academic year yet. Page 17 below for 2015/16:

    If you're from England, the postgrad loan is due to start in September. That might help, but it's repayable.

    Otherwise, you might be better off going back to the person who told you about it and asking them more about it.
