    I was going through the student finance application process earlier and i had applied for the greater maintenance loan and it said it would be checking what my household income is before it would decide.


    The problem is I am currently in full time employment but will be leaving to study in September and i only live with my mother who works part time on a low income, so my question is when i apply for the greater maintenance loan will they know this or assume that the household income will remain the same?

    any help would be much appreciated

    (BTW I will be commuting from home Leicester to northampton)
