I was just wondering if I would get a higher student loan as I am currently living with a friend and their parents as my home life is...let's say less than tolerable (I don't really want to relive everything on here, I hope you understand)
I start uni in September (I'm currently doing A-Level) and I'm worried if my student loan will still be based off of MY parents income, because while they are high earning, they are also terrible people, and there is no way they would pay a penny towards my university. Or would my student loan be based off of my friends parent's income, as I am living with them? How long would I have to have been living here to have this identified as my permenant residence?

You might be classed as an independent student. But you'll have to provide evidence that you have no contact with your parents.

Try and contact Student Finance England:
See what they say. Hope the situation at home improves While it may seem your parents won't help you out at all - you'll never know until you ask. It is your education, and whats the point of them making such good money if they can't help their own child, who they brought up for 17/18 years? They'll have to give up that income eventually, so what better way to spend it than investing in their kid's education?
