    Hi, i start uni in a weeks time as a mature student.

    Me and my partner have been assessed by SFE for the current financial year. We have been given the full maintenance loan because she is under 25k. We have also been given the parental learning allowence and some help towards childcare (2 kids)

    Anyway... I have been offered a part time job, to do around uni. But my worries are that it will effect our grants.

    Basically if i earn in this current year, will we need to be reassessed? Will student finance take what i have earned from my parental and childcare grant, meaning there is not any point in me working? Or is there a allowance I can work, without it being taken into account?

    Apologise if i have rambled and thanks in adavence

    No, I don't think it's taken into account. Don't worry!
