Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I got an email saying my notification for award for my BOSS bursary today and it says i get £1000 non means tested which i understand. BUT then it says"the net payable award shown above has taken into consideration the following contribution to you award" then saying my parental/spouse contribution is £3,700 so does that mean all im getting to pay for uni from the NHS is the £1,000 non means tested? i'm confused and stressing out about it.

    I only was allowed to apply for the non means tested government bursary which gave me £2,234 but that isnt even enough to pay for accommodation!
    please help!
    many thanks!
