Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Hi just wondering if anyone knows what kind of support i'd get being a single parent? I will be 20 when I first apply and 21 when I start my studies, my son will be 3 by the time I start but will be staying with my parents at home whilst I go away to study so will be entitled to free hours at Nursery. Currently I claim Income Support but that will be stopped when I study at Uni does anyone have an idea what sort of money i'll be entitled to (if any) like maybe a bursary or something? Would be a great help if someone knew! I am applying for Wolverhampton (1st choice) and Cardiff Met (2nd choice).

    Thanks in advance!
