    Tried asking in the chat forum, didn't get a reply so i thought i'd give it a go here.

    I am 19 years of age. I have decided to return to school and take A levels (history, english lang, philosophy and politics). My application was successful, i have a place and will start studying this September, however because of my age i have to pay £2000/year to attend. I have been in part time work (16-26 hrs / week) for 18 months but i will have to quit when i start, and will have little way of finding income. I have saved up a substantial amount of earnings from working to pay for college, i am wondering if i will be entitled to any grants or income support whilst attending? I live with one parent who has been out of work for around a year. Thanks!

    Could you not continue to work just 8 hours per week on a Saturday or something?

    Unfortunately I don't really know about funding for this as I'm more knowledgeable for mature students (24+) which is slightly different.
