I am a post-graduate student and I got a scholarship for a training course and to attend a conference in the UK. I totally depend on my father so how should I answer the question about whether I have any other income or savings?

  • You said that that is his income, not yours. – Michael Hampton Dec 8 '18 at 15:07
  • Doesn’t the application ask separately for who is going to support you and relevant details? – jcaron Dec 8 '18 at 15:31

    Michael Hampton asked if you have any other income or savings. You answered "no". So how should you answer? "No", because that is the truth. – gnasher729 Dec 9 '18 at 13:36

It’s not clear from your question but assuming your father gives you an allowance / funds from time to time/regularly, I recommend that you state you have ‘Other regular income’, then select ‘Another Income’, then enter the total amount you receive from your father each year. You can explain the basis of your father’s support in the ‘Extra information’ section at the end of the application (and in your covering letter, if you’re submitting one) and you will need to substantiate this via your and your father’s bank statements and evidence of the source of his money eg pay slips.
