    I am planning on starting a full time degree in September 2018. I am currently employed and am on a £25000 + salary. When I start studying I will not have a steady means of income. I see in the application for a living allowance that it takes into account the last tax year annual salary when assessing the amount you qualify for. I live in London and live alone. Will my current salary affect what amount I am entitled to in the 2018 academic year application?

    Hi mandatam01,

    What you earn now (or what you earned during the required tax year) will have no effect on your 2018/19 application. We don't take a students salary in account unless they are being paid by their employer to attend the course.

    If you are 25 or over before the start of the academic year and single then we won't need the household income details to assess you for the full amount of Maintenance Loan.

    Regards,

    Stuart
