    I will be applying for university this year but until now my parents haven't been supporting me with anything despite me living with them. I wont have a postal address as i dont want them to find out what my plans on leaving home is yet, so applying for student finance amd universities will be quite a tough job. I dont know what i should do. Does anyone know of any alternatives?

    What do you mean not supporting you? You mean emotionally about going to uni or you mean they arent letting you sleep in their house and paying for your food?


    If you want more than the minimum financial aid then student finance will need to factor in your parents earnings.
    The only way round this is if you are estranged and independent. Also if you are being abused then that can sometimes exclude the need to be living independently, but you would probably need the support of your GP and a social worker.SFE need to see real independent evidence to make sure the situation is what you say it is. Non supportive parents isnt enough by itself to get out of them being financially responsible and having their earnings taken into account.

    Standalone is the charity that specialises in estranged students. talk to them.
