Document How will my bursary be affected if I am an independent student but I have just moved in with my partner?

Basic bursary award

If you are an independent student who was formerly single and you start cohabiting with a partner, your bursary will need to be reassessed to include your partner's income / expenses. Your basic bursary award will be re-assessed from the date you started living together to the end of the academic year.

You will need to submit a new application via your Boss account to include your partner's details and send in the requested documents from the 'Evidence Required Email'. You should also include a covering letter stating the date this change occurred and evidence that you are now living together. Please see the related article 'What can I send as evidence to prove that I have moved in with a partner?' for further information.

As part of the assessment of this application, you may notice your application being rejected and a Change of Circumstances being submitted on your behalf via the applicable enrolment period. This is not an indication of any issue with your application and you should ignore the generic email you receive resulting from the Change of Circumstances we submit.

Dependants Allowance

If you were receiving any Dependants Allowance and / or Childcare Allowance, this will also need to be reassessed from the date you moved in with your partner.
 
If you weren't receiving any Dependants Allowance, you can apply for your partner and any children who are financially dependent on you.
