    Hello,
    I have been married for three months and I am going uni this Sept. I was wondering if when I apply for the student finance they will take into account my husband's income and my income too (because I am working) or just his income. Another thing that I want to know is if they will ask for my parent's income given that I am 19 but I am not living with my parents. I am living with my husband. I am quite confused about this. Hope you can help me
    Thank you

    I think the best thing to do would be to contact the university about this

    Hi Gracy-carolina,

    If you are under 25 years old and married, you will be considered dependent on your husband.

    The application only asks for a student to declare any unearned income.

    Only your husband need supply his income details and we will use that income to calculate your support.

    To work out how much you may be entitled to, here is a link to the Student Finance England Calculator,
