    I am currently a second year undergraduate student, receiving a maintenance loan based upon their income, however, I am currently looking to move out of my parents home and purchase a property with my boyfriend.Therefore, my question is would my maintenance loan remain the same or would it be possible to speak to someone regarding an increase for the maintenance loan?

    Hi ZCat16,

    If you are under 25 years old you would still be assessed on your parents income. If you are currently living with parents and you move away from home then your loan would increase slightly to elsewhere/own home rate.

    Thanks

    Hi Louise,

    Thanks for your response. I’m currently 25 and looking towards moving out of the family home, would that still mean my maintenance loan would go on my parents income as 25? Or is it 24 and under?

    Many thanks

    Hi Zoe,
    If your are 25 or over before the start of the academic year then you would be classed as an independent.This would entitle you to be assessed based on your income rather than your parents.


    Thanks
