    Hi there. Bit of a story first. So my partner was looking at jobs and I got looking into university courses for her to go on instead. Pursuade her to apply and she got a place. This then got me thinking about my own studies. I had a place to attend uni when I was 18 but never went due to the unforseen circumstances of starting a family with my partner which stopped me from going (although in hindsight maybe I should have still gone) and instead I started work (currently employed full time). So my question is this, if I was to apply to university aswell and get a place would we both be able to/be eligible to apply for student finance/funding?

    Thankyou in advance for any and all help

    Hi Elfyn,

    Let me ask you afew questions to help you better.

    First of all can I ask, are you and your partner over 25 years old and are you married?

    Secondly do you have any children?

    Finally, what is the course, level of qualification are you looking to undertake?

    Thanks Rona
