    I'm applied to ... Access to humalitiesI currently have 2 previous hnc in social & child care & work as a nursery teacher. I'm going to give up my job in August to make the step to changing my career but been told that I won't get funding and be responsible for all my own fees, childcare & cost of living. The college has told me that I could apply for a dissertation fund come October but no Guarntees I would b granted that.I am a single parent with 2 children (9 & 5) .... Could anyone help in terms of welfare on the money side of this matter how I can make it possible to study finacially ? X X

    There's no help with funding for living costs for Access courses I'm afraid.
