    Hi

    I am a mature student in receipt of maintenance loan and grant as I have 2 dependents and am single parent. My daughter is planning to go to Uni in September and will be applying for student finance, she has applied for student accommodation. Is there any way of me finding out roughly by how much my student finance will drop to allow me to budget? I know its a fair way off.

    Thanks

    If you're talking about PLA then the maximum it could drop by would be £1,573 (as that's how much you can get in total) but unless your income is high (which is unlikely as you're a single mum and a student) you'll probably get the full amount regardless of how many children live at home

    http://www.studentfinance.direct.gov..._schema=portal might be able to help but I can't get into it to check if it includes questions about dependent children.

    http://www.studentparents.org/ is a bit simpler but should also give you an indication (and breaks down which allowances are which)
