Partner is FT student and I work PT: how does that affect means-tested? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi folks!

    Basically, I have already made my application but I'm not sure how my means-tested application will be assessed as my partner is already a FT student at university, and I am over 25 and working part-time to help feed us?
    I will be living apart from him once my course starts in September, and will, at best, continue to work part-time if I am able.
    How will his financial situation (he gets full loans and grants, we're very low income) affect my application? Will his loans be counted towards my income? If so, will this mean I am unlikely to be awarded the expected full amounts of loans and grants?

    Many thanks!
