    My boyfriend is starting University in September and I am going with him to study my A levels in a near by Sixth form. We are living in double occupancy student accommodation and I was wondering if I could get a student loan to cover rent/ living costs?

    You can't get a loan and most support wouldn't apply as you're either too young to claim or not studying unique qualifications.

    What you might be eligible for is to claim https://www.gov.uk/income-support/eligibility (and you should speak to someone official to find out what happens to your child benefit if you aren't living with your parents).

    Hi Okh20

    Your boyfriend may be able to apply for funding for his student finance but unfortunately you can't through ourselves as the qualification level is not high enough.

    Please speak to the department of work and pensions or the student adviser at your place of study for help.

    Thanks
