    I have signed up at university as a mature student and at university a lady helped me sort finance out. She said I will get my course fee's paid and maintenance loan and adult dependance grant. I will be doing full time study and work and live with my husband who works. We have a rough income of 38000 a year. We have 1 dependant who is 18 and will be at college so an adult dependant. I will be living at home. Will I be entitled to anything? I am sure I wasn't when doing part time through OU, any help would be great.

    Hi,

    You would need to select your marital status and that you were living with your partner. As your son is over 18 he is not technically classed as your dependent, unless there was an exceptional reason, such as health or disability.

    You would be assessed based on on your husbands income only.

    Thanks
