Morning all,
I started university 2018 for a 3 year adult nursing course. I applied for all that I could claim; tuition fees, maintenance loan, parents education grant and disability grant.
I was informed at the start that all does not directly effect tax credits nor housing benefit and council tax however I now have conflicting information about housing benefits. Does maintance loan effect housing benefit?
A little about myself: I live with my self-employed partner with a teenage daughter. I do not work. We rent which is currently paid mostly by housing benefit, we claim child tax and working tax too. The HB and CT is in my partners name.
I have booked an appointment with the student finance team at university but that's next week so I'm panicking.

Thank you for any advice.

Xx

yes the actual loan part they will consider at least part of it towards housing benefit but they won't count any grants you have.
