Hi there,

When did you begin your course and when are you starting your new year?

Thanks, Erin

Hi,

When in 2018?

Are you studying a Distance Learning course due to disability?

Regards,
Nihad

Hi, in order to be assessed for some help towards living costs, we'll need to see evidence that you can't attend a course in person due to a disability. The evidence required is as follows:

- Medical evidence from your GP or Consultant confirming your condition prevents you from travelling to/from your university, as well as physically attending.
- Evidence that you have had discussions with multiple universities about the facilities available, accessibility and why the universities cannot accommodate your requirements. This could be in the form of emails/correspondence between you and the universities.
- Written confirmation from you on how your condition impacts your day-to-day life.
- Evidence from you showing how you support yourself financially i.e. benefits/employment.

Please send your evidence to Student Finance England, PO Box 210, Darlington, DL1 9HJ. Thanks, Aaron.
