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

    hi dors anyone know anything about the summer fund? i am unable to work due to a compulsory placement over the summer and would like to know more about it if anone else has received it.


    I haven't applied for the Summer Fund but I did submit an application for the Denis Turner fund this academic year. I spent 6 months jumping through hoops, supplying ever increasing detail about my income and expenditure (and that of my husband as I'm a married mature student with children).

    The verdict - they believe that I am am being underpaid by SFE and therefore awarded me £50. SFE disagree so loan/childcare element unchanged.

    I remain broke as hell and I am in two minds as whether to invest further time and printing credit into applying again. The summer fund would be applicable to me though as I have secured a placement relevant to my course but the childcare and travel costs are going to make it prohibitively difficult. So I may give it a bash when I summon up the will.
