    My parents earn just over 30k a year, and with myself and 2 siblings to support, putting me through Uni is basically going to cripple them. I realise that I'll be paying most of my fees myself, once I've got some money, and that my parents will be helping me... any idea if I would get any assistance with my fees? There's very little chance that I can afford to go to uni if I dont...

    Help?

    you won't know for sure till you fill in all the paperwork they ask for - it's dependent on a number of factors & the exact boundaries are not published.

    but, i'm in a similar situation, though an only child & receive some fee support (but only ~ £200, so still have to pay ~ £1000) but do receive the maximum loan, i.e. over £4,000 pa, living outside london but away from home.
