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

    Hi all,

    I'm in my final year and my student finance ran out on July 1st 2016, which if I had completed my work is the date when I would have been able to claim benefits, and cease being a student.

    However due to illness, I’ve taken the extenuating circumstances route, which means I will have to submit work during the summer, and I will be classed as a full time student until mid-September 2016. I have been informed by student finance England that it is possible to get 2 or 3 months extra funding from them, and I was wondering if anyone else had been through this same procedure?
