    The form is available online from the start of April. I think you're gaurenteed accommodation as long as you apply by the 30th of June. Id assume they'll send an email to us when it's time to apply. What accommodation are you thinking of applying for?

    I honestly don't know . I have still not read about the accommodations part in any Uni :p:D.
    What accommodation are you trying for though?
    So, the deadline for applying for accommodation is 30th June?

    Thankyou . See you

    Self-catered ensuite but I'd settle for ensuite catered. You might be able to apply after June 30th but the website says that's the last day for guaranteed accommodation so it's safer to apply before then ☺️

    Does anyone of you understand how one should complete the financial profile?

    If so, would anyone be so kind to give me some instructions (I am a dependent student)? I am struggeling with the english expressions and I can't find good translations for them

    Is Salary (PAYE) your annual income in net or in gross?
    What does "private pensions" mean? And how is this different from state pension?
    Is private pension just the money you saved, so do you have to tell how much money you own in general? I guess state pension is the money you get from the state after you retired. Do you have to say how much money you (your parents) will get when they retire or do you just have to included that, when youre parents already retired and get the money right now?
    And what does "working tax credit" mean?

    Would be extremly great if someone could help me with all this and explain what it means, I don't quite get our german system but the english one is VERY confusing

    Your salary is your net salary based on how much you should earn each year. Private pension is a seperate system (normally comes from an external company) where you pay towards a pension that you'll get when you retire. It's not your personal savings so you don't need to worry about that. State pension is what you get from paying national insurance and tax - the government pays that. As far as I'm aware this also includes any work pension you get. Working tax credits won't apply to you as it's only those in Britain that get them. They're essentially extra money that lower income families get.

    I'm not great at this stuff so I wouldn't take what I've said as 100% gospel but that's the basis I used when filing mine out. Hope that helps ☺️

    Thank you so so much!!! That was very helpfull. "Pay-as-you-earn" salary is net, am I right? If my parents did not retire yet, and they obviously do not get any State pension because they work right now, I do not have to include what they will get if they retire, do I?

    Again, I am so thankful for your help. !!!!! I can't express how, I was kind of in despair :blushing:

    Yeah, your salary is pay as you earn which is net. I don't think you need to include state pension as the financial profile is to detail income so pension won't affect this until they retire.

    No problem, if you need anymore help just ask ☺️

    I didn't do anything, apart from read it. I still haven't heard back...
