An individual does not have enough maintenance loan to live. Student finance.
They have been told they are only eligible for £4.5k in maintenance loan once application submitted, despite student finance calculator stating they would be eligible for £9,217.
They have contacted student finance and was told this was because of their parent's partner's income.
This partner does not live in the same household as their parent and does not contribute to their household income in any way or financially support them whatsoever.
Despite this they have been told "they still need to take partner's income into consideration".
They are lost on what they are meant to do because they are unable to have half a maintenance loan because of an individual who does not even live or help them financially in any way,
which means they may be forced to not be able to go to University regardless of whether they get in and regardless of the fact that they have no other means of financial support as £4.5k will not even cover accommodation ANYWHERE.

Can student finance please explain how this is possible or fair? Thank you.

Hi there,

Does the student have contact with their other parent? Does this other parent also live with a partner?

Thanks, Graeme

Hi they have contact and no, the other parent is also not to do with their household.

Okay, it may be possible to use this parent's details instead. Do you know if that parent would be willing to provide their financial details?

Thanks, Graeme

I don't understand how that would be legitimate. They do not financially contribute to their household. Why would they give the financial details or a parent they don't even live with, how does that make any sense.

Hi there,

The parent that has supported your application, is this the parent you have most contact with?

Thanks, Erin
