    Hi super new to this, but my husband is a full time student doing his first year. I was thinking about starting uni full time this year as he begins his second year. Does anyone know what student finance will be available to us as a full time student couple? We have 2 dependants and currently get some childcare grant and maint loan etc., but that only covers his half of our bills. Any advice is appreciated! The student finance have just said we would have to apply to find out what we can get, but I'd have to leave my job so need to do alot of research before obviously! Tia xx

    My advice is to apply and find out (you can back out from the application at any point), then decide whether it's worth it.
