    Hi,
    I think the student finance system is biased towards students who's parents earn a high income

    Just because your parents earn a lot doesn't mean the disposable income is high; in actual fact, students from lower backgrounds on average receive more in terms of bursaries and also loans whereas students with parents on high income and many children often suffer as a result of the poor consideration taken.

    What are your thoughts?

    I agree with you, but that is often the case because the parent/s decide that their child should self-fund their education, not because they don't have the funds themselves. Usually their high-income is directed towards a more luxurious lifestyle than their child's education(this is obviously not in all cases, but I've seen happen more than enough times).
