    I'm going to be starting uni in 2017 and I'm looking into student finance. I'll be moving away from home to live with a relative (i'll be paying rent) closer to uni. When applying for your student maintenance loan, you can either say you are living with parents (for a smaller loan), or living away from parents (for a larger loan). Would I be able to apply for the larger loan, or is that just for those living in student accommodation? Cheers

    Anyone living outside the parental home can apply for the larger amount.
