    Hello

    I am hoping to get a place on the Bsc Physiotherapy course starting in September 2018. I would be returning as a mature student , this will be my second degree, and I have a couple of queries about student finance that I'm hoping you will be able to help me with.

    I am currently employed part-time by Mind and I am part-time self employed. I will need to apply for a maintenance loan and continue my self employed work whilst studying so that I can contribute towards our mortgage and household bills. However I am unsure in practice exactly how many hours I will be able to work and therefore how much I will be earning, I would not think it would be any more than £400 pcm. Do I have to declare this when it comes to applying for my student loan and visa versa; declaring my loan on my self assessment tax return? If so I'm not sure how to estimate my income as part of our joint household earnings and I would like to know how this will effect the amount of maintenance loan I will receive as I don't think that I will be able to afford to return to education unless it is very near to the full amount.

    Thank you in advance for your help

    Kind regards

    Hi Jennifer,

    Could you please confirm if you are married or over 25 years old living with a partner?

    Thanks

    Hi Jenny,

    We will use only your partner's income to calculate your funding for student finance, if the income is below £25000.00 the you will receive the full package of funding, below is a calculator that will give you an estimate of your entitlement amount.

    Thanks
