    The official terminology for student finance is whether or not you live in your "parental home". In theory this could be next door to your student house and you would still be eligible for the higher rate of loan.

    Hi Zoe.Self

    When you apply you can indicate "living elsewhere/own home" and we will assess you on the higher rate. Obviously this means your loan will be higher so you will have more funds to pay bills with but keep in mind it means you will also have more loan to pay back.

    Thanks
