I'm a mature student (31) and currently studying my first year at college with the intention of going to uni after. I have received a 24+ loan for my tuition fees.
I am currently not working at the moment and living with parents (who are not charging me rent whilst studying). The household income is at the top end but I cant expect my parents to pay my living costs as well.
I had previously been a bar manager and have always worked but wanted a change of career, hence going back to study.
Can I get help with costs of living? I'm struggling to put food on the table, petrol in the car, let alone pay any rent. If I went into college tomorrow, what type of loan etc would I look to apply for and can I still apply because we are halfway through the first year?

When you are studying on a 24+ course, you are only eligible for help from us for the tuition fees. You could check with the college to see if there is any alternative funding of the DWP.
