    Hi,
    I have just started filling out my student finance form for my PGCE.
    I live with my partner - we have recently brought a house.

    I select that I don't live with parents, that they won't be funding me, and I live in my own house with my partner...but it keeps on asking me about my parents and getting me to provide their details. I go back through and check all the time and it keeps sending me in circles... asking; do i live with them - no. why... dead, in care etc obviously i select none and then it says i need to say which parent i have contact with. so i do and then it asks for their details because they'll be supporting me. but they won't!!!!

    anyone else having this issue?

    If you're under 25 then student finance asdumes you're dependant on your parents unless you can prove otherwise. 3 years paycheques showing income above £7.5k, having a child or getting married are the proof they'll accept.
