    I currently live with my mum, who is still married to but separated from my dad. However in July (after my exams) we will be moving in with my mum's current partner. This means that I will be living in a different area/county as well as with my mum & her partner, not just my mum, come the start of my course in Sept/Oct.

    Is my student loan still based on my mum and dad's household income (i.e. the previous tax year)? As they still lived together during the 14-15 tax year with my dad moving out in June 15.

    Also, I'm not sure whether I'm firming UCL or Durham yet - I'm leaning towards UCL so do I put this & if I change my mind I just change it?

    Edit: just to clarify, I'm currently living in England & will still be in England after I move - just a different county

    Your finance for the upcoming academic year is based on the 2014/15 tax year unless you complete this form: http://media.slc.co.uk/sfe/1617/ft/sfe_cyi_1617_d.pdf (which you can only complete if your household income DROPS by 15%) so you're fine using just your mum's income...but be frugal because you will end up with less in future years!

    Put your best guess uni/course. It's easy to change later on (a LOT of people change these details in August!) as long as your application is in on time then adjusting uni/course wont affect your loan payments.
