    We have an average (well I think its avaerage at £48,000 PA). With this figure we are expected to help our daughter with about £2200 per year just to get her up to the full maintenance loan (which incidently doesn't even cover weekly Uni room cost!) The problem is that we have a younger disabled child at home who needs a lot of care needs meaning lots of expenditure. Does the loan application take this into account st all or is ot a case of "tough get on with it"?

    Hi Remote250869,

    When assessing the household income we will take dependents other than the student into consideration when calculating the funding, when you are completing your financial details online this will also advise you to include other dependent children.

    Thanks

    Catherine
