Student Finance financially independent?

Hi there,

I am under 25 and have lived with my partner for 3 years away from my parents, but at the beginning of the 3 years I was on a different uni course on student loan. Having left that course after 2 terms and been employed since, will I be considered independent?

Many thanks

Hi there,

You need to have been 3 years self supporting before the start of the course you're doing now.

Hi,

thanks for the reply,

what I'm saying is that I have mostly been working during the past 3 years but for some of it I have been in uni. Will this count as 3 years independent?
Hi chimo44,

Student finance payments do not count towards being classed as financially self supporting

Thanks,
Calum
