    Hi all,

    I am starting a full-time course this September.
    My wife is pregnant and I have a mortgage.
    She is currently employed full-time and I am working a full-time/soon to be part-time job.

    I have applied for a student loan.
    What other financial help if any can I receive? Would my wife be able to claim any benefits if I am a student.

    Any advice welcome.

    Thanks in advance.
