Parents and partners of students

As the parent or partner of a student you’ll usually support a student finance application if the student is applying for products based on their household income.

Your role

After the student has applied you’ll be sent an email asking you to confirm your income. You can do this online. You’ll be guided through the process and we will tell you what information and evidence to send.

As the parent or partner of a student, you are not liable for the repayment of their student loan.
