    • Thread Starter

    I will be studying a diploma and need a support for accommodation, food and things. I will be living in a new place. I also have a disability so may have a chance for something.I don't have much time to go through process of loan because course starts soon. Are you entitled to maintence for level 4 5 further education courses? I know I'm entitled to tuition fee it's mostly living costs. I think my credit is low for bank loan. Please help I'm very worried

    Have a look here:

    You might be pushing it a bit to get anything out of them in the next few weeks though.

    Good luck!

    The funding for a level 4 course that isn't a uni or college course is completely different. You're entitled to the advanced learner loan for tuition fees. There's also a bursary fund -

    If your course is part time, you'd be entitled to benefits if you meet the criteria. If your course is full time and you receive DLA / PIP, you can apply for housing benefit and ESA. You'd also be exempt from council tax as a full time student.
