    Hi

    I was wondering if anyone can answer my question.

    I graduated university in 2015 and i am now starting my PGCE course in September 2018. I know i should be able to get student finance funding no problem.
    But for the last two half years i have been in full time employment, i'm still living at my parents house and wont be employment while on the course.
    Will i have to include mine and my parents income in the means test for my maintenance loan, even though i still live at home and wont be employed during the course ?

    Thank you

    The same rules apply as for undergraduate student finance. If you will be 25 or over you will be automatically classed as independent and get the maximum student finance or if you have beeen working for 3 years at the start of the course. Otherwise student finance will look at your parents income.
