    Hi,
    Im a lone parent, but my ex partner takes care of tephe child at times. Im on NHS bursary, I think its the biggest amount around £ 850. Im working around 30 hours a week as I cannot afford not to work. Ive applied for support with childcare costs as its around 500 a month. Im renting a flat and got a loan (around 200 a month)
    My question is, is it fine for me to work or I have to give up? Im not sure if its legal or not but I cant afford not to work even with the bursary. I dont want to break the law or something so therefore Im asking for an advice. I work as a support worker, I didnt claim my income as full time students dont have to. I plan to cut my hours down to 16 from 1 st of January,
    Please let me know what should I do now

    Hi,

    It is fine to work through your studies, this will no affect your entitlement. We do not take students employment into consideration when assessing applications.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    My apologies. I thought you were receiving student finance, you would need to contact the NHS Bursary Unit in regards to your above enquiry.

    Thanks
