    I'm currently studying health and social care level 3 and I've applied for mental health nursing, my application has gone! all very exciting! however i'm still not 100% what's happening finance wise!
    My parents ear a fair amount of money but I wont be living with them at university, im 22 and ive been supporting myself whiles at home. will I get the full amount when it comes to loans or will it not be a lot? im just worried because my household income when it comes to me dad and step mum is way over £70,000 a year. but I'm working and independent so will this affect?

    Please can I have answers lol.

    You will not be classed as an independent student if you are living with your parents as you are not supporting yourself in terms of accommodation. Your loan would be means tested against your parent's earnings.

    Where you live isn't what defines you as an independent or dependent student. It's based primarily on age, but also whether or not your parents are alive/you have contact with them. SFE/NHS would class you as a dependent student and your entitlement to funding would be based on your last year's parents income. As £70,000 is quite a lot, you will not receive anywhere close to the full student support package I'm afraid.
