    CSA1 - does income include student loans and grants? 24th Mar 11 at 1:23 PM
    Any help appreciated please.

    My friend has a case under the old CSA scheme (pre-2003).

    He is currently suffering from depression and his job is insecure. He has been offered a full time place at University. If he takes up the place, he intends to continue working part-time and apply for student finance. He will be entitled to a student maintenance loan and a maintenance grant.

    I have scoured the booklet which explains how assessed income is calculated. Student loans and grants are NOT mentioned.

    Are student maintenance loans and grants classed as income when calculating assessed income?

    Thank you for your help.

  • I keep seeing this, but what is this EU rule? Does anyone have a source? (the petition asks for a rule to be set up)
