if you have a child and are studying you are probably better off staying on benefit. I know you want to work but can you afford to?

When you get to uni you will get more money to look after your child and you will also be eligable for hardship funds towards child care.

Also if you have a child and are studying is it really fair to your child to be working as well? I'm assuming you don't have a partner as you have not mentioned one.

One of my friends who is married had a note left for her by her daughter that went along the lines of "please can I book an appointment to see you, I know you are busy but I want to talk to you" - how guilty did she feel? She was half way through her dissertation at the time.

Rather than working part time all year what about working full time over the summer? I know this is a boring suggestion but ........... what about childminding over the summer? many parents find it hard to find childcare for the summer holidays, I know £10.00 per hour is a lot but if you cared for 2 or 3 children, and depending on age 'care' might not involve a lot you could soon make up £10.00 per hour.
