    Claim in terms of what? Benefits?

    It would be worth getting in touch with your local council to ask what they offer. You might be entitled to a reduce council tax off the top of my head!

    It depends on your situation. When I did my access course, they made sure it was part time so that those claiming benefits, so carry on claiming them. You can only claim benefits as a full time student if you're either disabled and receive PIP or DLA or a parent. (lone or carer)

    In terms of student finance eligibility, you may be able to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan for your course, depending on your circumstances and course eligibility.

    There is some information available here http://www.practitioners.slc.co.uk/f...education.aspx regarding this support.
