    I start uni on the 19th sept. I am a mature student, I am a single parent and I have a 9 year old son.
    I have already applied and been accepted for my student loan to pay for tuition fees.I am in receipt of housing benefit and tax credits. I also plan to work a few hours a week in my old job.I believe I could be entitled to a maintenance loan but what I want to know is whether that will effect my housing benefit. If they treat it as income then my benefit will be cut or even stopped. This seems unfair considering I have to pay the money back at a later date. Do you know anything about this? Is the loan treated as an income?I also wonder whether I may qualify for any other financial help.
