Student finance with sibling already in university

I am looking to start my first year of university in September and have recently applied for student finance. Due to technical issues my dad hasn’t been able to support my application online, so instead I’ve gotten him to fill in a PFF2 form which I can upload onto my account as evidence so he can support me.

He’s completed all sections on the form except for section 6 on child dependants which we are slightly unsure about. I know that my two younger siblings need to be included in this section because they’re both financially dependent on my parents, it’s just that I have an older sister who will be at university at the same time as me and has also applied for student finance. Regarding this, I just wanted to ask whether she needs to be included on the form or not as a dependent in higher education.

Thanks

Hi there,

Yes, she can be included in Q2 as it asks, 'Child dependants in further or higher education in academic year 2024/25' and then whether they also wish to support their application. So her information can go in there. Thanks, Jason

Oh ok I understand now, I’ll get my dad to include her as a dependent then the form should be fully completed, thanks for your help
