    I started Uni in September and am only receiving basic loan as my Dad won't provide the details for additional funding (he is on a low income). I have not been living with him prior to Uni as he threw me out earlier this year and has not been providing any support so how/can I apply for student funding as an independent person although I am only 19?

    Do you still have contact with him?

    Hi there.

    If you're estranged from your parent's we would need to see a letter from a professional person (Doctor, Lecturer, Police Officer, etc) who is aware of the situation and can explain some details.

    You would normally need to have had no contact with your parent's for at least 4 months before this can be considered.

    If you're unable to get evidence you can provide a written letter explaining this and the reasons why you're unable to, and it will be passed to our Independence team for further review.

    Thanks
