    hi


    i will be applying to university this year and on ucas it asks me to declare whether i have a job. would having a 0 hour contract affect the amount i'm given for student finance (my mum is a single mum and is unemployed), like does me working mean they'll perhaps give me less?

    also, do I HAVE TO declare? can i just leave that info out or do they have a way of finding out. thanks in advance

    If you're going to uni as a full-time student, then all of your earnings will be disregarded. You don't need to declare anything.

    I didn't declare and then I rang up the uni because I was a bit worried and they said it doesn't matter and UCAS said the same. It's important to put it down if you're a mature student though

    It's intended to be filled in by mature students to explain the gap between leaving school and going to university. It won't make any difference to you if you leave it out.
