I am due to start uni in September 2021. When I have to apply for student finance, I’m unsure on the annual income.

I am 22 (I will be 23 in September) and I have mortgage for my own house that I share with my fiancé. We have held the mortgage for 2 years. My parents do not help me financially but I have contact with them. Who’s income do I put? Since I feel it’s unfair that I don’t get much if I put my parents income and they will not support me financially whilst I’m at university.

However I have been in the same job since July 2018 - so almost 3 years and will be 3 years when I start my course. I would class my income as enough to support myself, does that mean I can be classed as independent?

If you go down the route of 3 years self support, they will ask for evidence. If your accepted then that's fine but if they deem you didn't earn enough for any part of the three years then you may have to give your parents details.
