    I received an e-mail that I can be eligible for bursary from my uni. What I am not sure about is if my income counts towards household income? I was working in 2015/2016 in UK.
    Also the form asks only for my parents details so what about mine income? I was working for 2 years only (with breaks) so not long enough to be 'independent student'.

    Hi emmedew,

    If you are under 25 years old and dependant on your parents, it is only their income that will be required.

    If you are over 25 years old and independant, and you apply for the bursary, you will be required to provide evidence of your income.

    This should be in the form of an employers letter on company headed paper stating your yearly earnings / tax, the EU tax year runs from 1 January to 31 December. This does not need to be translated.

    Regards Rona
