SFE applications don't open until late Feb/early March, so you have a while yet. Keep an eye on their social media channels/TSR.

In terms of thinking about actual money and knowing how much you can expect to get, it's good to start to engage in a conversation with your parents about how much they'll be able to contribute on top of your maintenence loan (especially if it's low).

You can get a maintenence loan estimate here: https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-c...or/y/2020-2021

When it asks "What type of student are you?" full-time or part-time, does it mean if your course starting in 2020 will be full-time or not?

Yes.
Another silly question, but do you know if Law is a "social work" course?

Does anyone know what an "independent student for student financial support" is? Can you choose to be this? For context, I will not be supported financially by my parents, because they are not able to support me (not that they don't want to).
Tagging Blue_Cow Thank you

If you're over 25 (or if you meet some other criteria), you'll be independent. It's not an option you can really 'choose' as such.
