    I currently work full time, when I head off to university in September I will be quitting my job as I am moving 350 miles to the other end of the country. When I do my finance application do I have to add my income if I won't have my job when I am at university? I just assumed that it would be the household income for whilst you're at uni?

    The student finance forms don't ask about the earned income of student that's applying - only any unearned income (eg from trust funds or rental income etc)

    If you're under 25 then the household income asked for will be for your parents.
    If you're over 25 (or meet the "independent" criteria in another way) then the household income asked for would be for your partner (plus any unearned income for your dependants).

    Hey thanks for your response, when using the student finance calculator it says the household income is yours + your parents? That's why I was checking!

    It would only be your unearned income (because SFE think we all have trust funds! )

    If you want an idea of the information asked for then you can see last years forms and guidance here: https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-f...17/new-student

    The online application when it opens will ask exactly the same questions for 2017/18 entry.
