    Hi!

    I am 24 and thinking of going to uni. I have applied for access course and having an interview about it next week. I currently work full time, own a house, dog(no kids) and of course my husband.

    I really want to do it full time, but I don't even know how to go about it financially. I don't have any savings, been having mortgage for the last 2 years I and I just don't know where to look or what to do :/

    I want to study Modern Languages and Translation.

    Can anyone please advise me of what you need to do/look for when got all those bills to pay but want to study full time?

    Many thanks in advance! X

    I think you answered your own question. Unless your husband and family can help out with the bills while you're at university, then that's doable. Your university experience won't have to be paid back until you finish it and make over 21,000 a year. If you don't pay it back within 30 years' time, then it will just be slashed.

    Thanks for your reply. The problem is that family won't be able to help; me and my husband work full time and both are wages cover bills. Is there anyone that offer financial help when you want to give up work to study full time?

    I am all new to this don't really know much about it either; asking as well because the uni I want to go to told me that the course I want to study is only available full time.

    I was in the same situation a couple of years back and never ended up going to university unfortunately. I did however do an access course and still worked 30 hours at my job, sometimes more. It's exhausting but doable. Uni wise? I'm not sure, I'm looking into it at the moment.

    Thanks all for replies!The course I want to study is not available part-time. Tw1x, I just been doing my research and you can get a maintenance loan."If you are taking a full-time course, you can get a Maintenance Loan of up to £8,200 per year(if the household income is less then £25,000) from the Government. This is a separate loan to the Tuition Fee Loan. The amount you get depends on your household income."Overall it does look like you can give up your job, get a little bit of financial help etc. I am consedering doing part time work as well if i be able to obtain maintenance loan.Now I have researched it, took me a while though lol it all looks like is doable, be tough, but can be done!
