    Hi, sorry if this has been answered before but just looking for a little clarity.
    I am 26 years old, living with my partner and looking to studying Animal Science. I wanted to do full time study but the combination of my partners income and mine will not allow this. When inputting information it asks for our shared income - do I put the amount in I'm working now as I will not be working full time? Surely this should be considered in your application as there is no way I will be earning anywhere near as much if I go to university?

    Thanks

    Hi Tw1x,

    We do not take student's income into account when processing your student finance, the only income that we would require would be your partner's income unless you had taxable unearned income.

    Income that will be taken into account
    • Bank or Building Society Gross Interest
    • Property Lettings or Rent
    • Dividends from investments/shares/unit trusts
    • Trusts or Sponsorships
    • Pensions
    • Any other payment received for attending the course (This does not include University Bursaries)

    Thanks

    So if I earn around 11,000 per year after tax and my partner earns 28,000 after tax, would I not put my income on? Sorry really struggling to get my head around the finance side of things

    Hi Tw1x

    Your assessment is based on your partners income only, we do not ask for your income.

    We only ask if you have any unearned income.
