    Hey All,

    I am just enquiring if I am counted as an independent student. I will be 25 prior to the first day of the next academic year (2017-2018).

    I've seen mixed answers about requiring estrangement from parents or marriage, but is simply being over 25 enough to qualify?

    Thanks

    Hi Bicyclepump,

    Yes if you turn 25 prior to start of the academic year then you would automatically be assessed as an independent student and we wouldn't look for any estrangement or financial evidence from your parents.

    Thanks

    Thanks Laura! If I may ask a follow up question please;

    I started university being assessed through student finance NI. Now as an independent student my home address is London. Should I be applying still through student finance NI or apply with Student finance England?

    Is this going to be your permanent address or are you still in London for the purpose of study?


    Thanks.

    Hi Bicyclepump,

    You would apply via Student Finance England if you are residing permanently in London. The link below is the application form:

    Hi Bicyclepump

    Are you going to be studying the same course or a new course while living in London?

    Thanks Catherine
