Going into final year of degree. Baby due October. Student finance in place, own home, partner working, childcare arranged.
Know it will be hard but figured I can do this if managed years 1 and 2 with other issues so having decided and planned study time when do I tell student finance and hoe long will it take to process the changes and release the funding for childcare
Was advised to enrol and get the first payment as a change may delay things and obviously until the baby is here the changes cant be applied
Atm plan is to enrol Sept and mix of attendance and study to due date. 2 weeks off study following birth then home study followed by phased return to be back full time after the christmas break. Uni are supportive and aware I can manage this as had a high risk pregnancy and passed year 2 with no issues even though had hospitalisations etc
I know a lot of people will think I will feel differently once the baby is here but I am doing this for my baby. I live 2 miles from campus and can still be there the majority of the time. I am doing this for him and to give him and my family a better future.
So the question is do I tell student finance immediately after the birth and then how long will it take to adjust the figures.
Oh and if anyone claimes Childcare support are these limited to timetabled hours or study hours and turorials and transport. I guess the question is as a full.time student how many hours a week were you granted and were these term time only.
Telling Student Finance I am having a baby & childcare grant hours allowed
