I know there are many university students and parents of students on here so perhaps you can help me with my question about student finance. (The useless directgov website makes it as clear as mud). I have one daughter finishing her second year of a 5 year dental course at university and she gets a student loan based partly on our household income. However I have another daughter starting uni in September. She to will go through the same application process and my household income will again be taken into account. As I understand they both apply independently and I have 2 independent loan id aliases as parental support. The question I have which I cannot seem to find an answer to is ; Is the amount of loan that each child will get affected by the fact that I now have the expense of 2 children to support through uni. I will be even further stretched the year after when yet another daughter will be wanting my support through uni.
