    Hi,
    I haven’t actually started my student finance application just just as I haven’t 100% decided so have not yet firmed my choice but I was wondering what you do regarding your own income. I’m currently working 2 hours a week and earning £30 however this employment will cease at uni so I assume it would not need to be included in anyway.

    Thanks.

    Hi Snoozinghamster,

    We don't actually take the students own wages into account when assessing the household income. So you wouldn't include this even if you were still working when you started studying.

    If you're under 25 on the first day of the first academic year, we would base it on your parents income, unless you meet any of the independent student criteria, see here. If you're over 25 on the first day of the first academic year it would be based on your own 'unearned income' (this doesn't include wages) and your partners (if you have a partner).

    I hope this information helps.

    Kind regards,

    John.
