    Hi, I'll be starting my uni in September and I need to start applying for student finance. Before I ring UCAS I was wondering if anyone can help...
    I'm a mature students but living with my parents and my 1 year old daughter as I'm a single parent. I still have to pay rent to my parents. Although I'm an independent student with my daughter do I still have to include my partner earnings as this will effect my maintenance loan due to their collective earnings.
    Thank you x

    As an independent student your parents income will not be assessed as part of your household. They will only look at your income and that of any partner.
