I am starting an access course in CAVC in September.
Currently I am self employed so my hours are flexible, but with the amount of study I will be doing (the access course and a distance learning course for GCSE Maths) my income is projected at £10,000 over the next year.
My wife is working full time, earning PAYE £26,000pa.
We have two children defendant on us (9 and 14).
Would there be any benefits of me applying for student finance NOT based on household income?
Confused which option would be better.

As far as I know, if you don't declare your household income then you will only receive the basic maintenance loan (which is around £3,800*). You would get a substantially bigger maintenance loan if you did include your household income. See here: http://www.savethestudent.org/studen...aintenanceloan
*Not 100% on this figure, it could well be lower.
