    Hey Horas

    As well as your Maintenance Loan, if you are a full time student and it is still available, you may be able to claim a Children Grant and/or a Parents' Learning Allowance.

    You may also be able to claim Housing Benefit and Council Tax if studying full time.

    Check out the Student Finance section on here - lots of useful info which helped me.

    Hope this helps.
