Hey!

I'm a bit unclear with a few things around student finance, and struggling to get clear answers 😩

I'm a new, mature student (33!) starting my first year (joint honours, with foundation year) this month. I'm currently living back with my parents, and was laid off at the beginning of the Covid-19 disaster, so I've been out of work since the end of March this year. My plan was to move into student accomodation, but with all but one of my classes being online for the first term at least, and my dad being high risk (we're still shielding), it is currently both safer healthwise and financially to stay put at their house. Here's where I am getting lost - can I apply for a student loan as independent, as I've been working up until Covid intervened, or do I need to submit all my parents finances?

Thanks so much for any help here - I'm trying to make this as simple for both myself and my parents, my mum does tend to worry about everything 😅 if I don't have to involve their finances, I know she'll be a lot less stressed!

Thank you! I wasn't sure if I needed to include my parents income, as I'm living with them, keep seeing "household income" and the more I tried to clarify the more confusing it got 😅 much appreciated!
