    Any help with anything would be appreciated!
    Basically, i applied for university last year, found out after 5 days that i was pregnant! so dropped out..
    I now have my 10 weeks old beautiful baby and have applied to study psychology as an online distance course at derby.
    I have been accepted for the september intake and am currently doing student finance -
    1. i want to do the course over 3 years (you can choose 3,4,5 or 6) so would that class as full time even though i do it from home?
    2. would i get any childcare grants if it classes as a full time course? Or is that just for students that actually attend the university in person?
    3. I have applied direct to the university - my student finance isnt working so im filling in the paper form - its saying about the ucas course code and my ucas number.. do i have to have applied through ucas to apply for student finance??
    4. Has anyone else tried juggling a young child, a full time course and a job? (im going down to part time hours - 24 a week)
    Thanks in advance xx
