I'm considering quitting my job to go back to Uni to do a PGCE. It all depends on the finance I can get. Obviously I've been working these past few years and SF are going to ask for my income from 14/15, but obviously the year i'm actually going to be going to Uni, I won't be earning a penny! Will they take this into consideration?
I have two kids and a mortgage, so will only be able to do the course if I can get the full maintenance loan. My husband will continue working. Will we still qualify for tax credits too? As he is still working full time.
