Does part time work effect student finance?

I believe working part time whilst at university will make no difference to your Student Finance.

If you're under 25, the income-assessed part of the Maintenance Loan is calculated only on your parents income. How much you earn is irrelevant and will be ignored by Student Finance.

If you're 25 or over and a full-time university student, then Student Finance automatically assess you on zero income.

Either way, any earnings from a part-time job will not make a difference to how much Student Finance you get.
