    Hi,

    I really am stuck with what to do.
    I am such a moron, that for the last 3 months I have been researching all my options, but made a mistake of confusing FE with HE. I thought I would be eligible for a Maintenance Grant, I tried to apply but I cant as there is no option on the site..

    I have been offered a conditional place for an Access to Nursing course.

    I am 21. I have 1 A-Level, so wouldn't be eligible for any concessions.
    However, I am currently signing on and am on JSA.
    I live with my parents, and we have a combined household income of less than 25k.
    So, I thought I would be eligible for a Maintenance Grant...turns out that's just for Uni(?)

    What help is available to me?


    (Sorry, also posted this in Ask Student Finance. Not sure if im allowed to double post, but I'm kind of desperate for help )

    Its College dependant, you may be able to get money for travel and books but speak to your college.
