If you are 16 or 17 you may also be eligible.

Allowance rates may be affected by your parents' income and can be topped up via a student loan in some situations.

You must meet the criteria to be eligible for student allowance. Each course has an efts value, please check your confirmation letter to see the efts value for the course/s you are enrolled on.
