    Hi , I was wondering if anyone on here has been awarded the childcare grant AND has a partner working full time? Just looking to see if there is anyone in a similar circumstance. I'm a full time mature student and due in July, my partner works full time and earns £35,000. I have read through all the documentation but there is nothing to clarify whether or not I am eligible given my partners wage Just wanted to know if any one had been successful? Many thanks

    Hi Kjsh,

    When applying for the Childcare Grant (CCG), the assessment is based on individual circumstances such as how many children you have, how many children will be in childcare and how much you will be paying in childcare. There's no set figure that determines the threshold.

    With your partner earning £35000, it's unlikely you'd eligible for the CCG, however, if you're able to clarify the above details I can give you a better idea.

    Kind regards,

    John.

    Hi Anulu,

    If you are undertaking a stand alone Masters qualification, this attracts a different type of funding.

    The Postgraduate Loan is a contribution loan, not specifically for fees or living costs.

    It is paid in installments into your bank account, spread over the length of your course and you decide how you are going to use it.

    The loan support will be up to a maximum of £10,609 for the length of your course for new postgraduate students starting their postgraduate Master's course in 2018/19 Academic Year.

    We do not look at your household income, you decide how much you wish to borrow up to the maximum.

    Unfortunately there is no childcare or other support with the Postgraduate loan other than Disability Students Allowance.

    Thanks Rona
