    please bare with me as this may turn out to be a long post!
    Im 21, a single mum to a little man who'll be starting school this september. I have an interview for a place on a BA Hons
    Degree on the 10th Feb. I currently work full time (41hrs a week) but hopefully going to be going to uni full time from September
    However, i am quite concerned how i'd manage financially living off student loans and grants. Can anyone in my position give
    me a breakdown of their monthly incomings? My rent is £695 a month (private accomodation)

    many thanks

    I;m not in your position but it's going to vary - your funding will be based on previous earnings for the first two years. You will find this useful https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-calculator

    You will still be entitled to child benefit and child tax credits. A full time student is exempt from council tax and if you rent, you may be entitled to some housing benefit.
Do you like carrot cake?
