Available loans for households with 2+ children

I have two children planning to attend university in 2017. How does the household means testing work for households with more than one student at university?
Answered by Cicely Oliver
Hi Julie

As I understand it, where there is more than one eligible student in the household, the household income figure is reduced and the reduced amount used in the assessment calculations.

Depending on where you live, contact Student Finance England 0300 100 0607, Student Finance Wales 0300 200 4050, Student Finance Northern Ireland 0300 100 0077, or Student Awards Agency Scotland 0300 555 0505 for confirmation, or check with the university/ies.

Best wishes.
