Can anyone tell me what is the household income threshold that would mean a student gets the minimum maintenance loan (£4168)? I don't seem to be able to find this online & on the SLC website I can only see a table going up to £50k income (https://www.slc.co.uk/media/latest-news/parents-an-essential-guide-to-student-loans.aspx), but those students get £5579, so the cut off must be higher than that.

All students can get the minimum regardless of parental income. It's much easier to claim as there is no documentation or anything to submit. My DS did it all himself online.

Sorry, I think I misread your post! I'll see if I can find out for you.

Okay, if you open your link, you'll see another link to click which takes you to a more detailed table. £62,215 seems to be the cut-off, but I think it's a bit out of date (2017-18).

For starting in year 2019/20, using the student finance calculator on Gov.co.uk, and playing with parent salaries its about £63000.
At £62000 the student gets £4195 in maintenance loans BUT at £63000 the Student gets £4168.
That's studying full time outside London, no depends, not studying Teaching, nursing or social work.

So £63000 or above.
Everyone gets the £4168, if they apply, for more parents have to prove financial details, ie P60 or tax details.

This was back in October so they said it could change for 2019 but don't think it has

Thank you 2Boys, choirmum and scarecrow. I don't know why I couldn't find this. Great idea to take photos of the open day slides - wish I'd thought to do this.
