Hi there. My situation is complex and seems utterly hopeless so any available advice will be greatly appreciated.
I am unemployable due to a lack of qualifications.
I want to take a course and get a degree so I can become employable.
Problem is, I have to be at home most of the time to look after my mother.
So, I've looked into distance learning and it turns out you can get a tuition loan... Great!
But how am I supposed to cover everyday living costs since (PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong) you can't get a maintenance loan if you're a distance learner.
Are there any alternative funding options or anything I'm missing in general?
What do I do? Please, someone help me, this is driving me nuts.
