Hello! I just have a quick question regarding student finance

What happens if I am from a low income family receiving tax credits? Will I still be eligible for a student loan and maintenance loan?

Thanks!! x

The less your family earn the more support you get. The more benefits they receive does not decrease what you get from SFE, it will increase it in most cases since it is indicative of an overall low income. I imagine you will probably receive a full maintenance loan and whatever they've replaced the grant with. You'll definitely get a tuition fee loan, you have to earn a fair bit not to get that.

Hi, thanks for your reply! It's really helped me!

As me or my family has ever done this before, is there a section when applying for Student Finance where things such as working tax credits can be stated?

I believe there is a section that mentions benefits. Just go through and fill out everything they ask of you and it'll be fine. They aren't looking to trick you. It's your first time applying so having a crack and just see what they're asking first.
