Single parent carer and notional hours of study on a part time MA Watch

Report Thread starter 6 days ago

I am hoping that there is someone on here with some knowledge of notional hours of study and carer’s allowance.

I am a single parent and have already done a year of study on my course. I am not able to do the full amount of notional hours due to my caring responsibilities but am getting by ok on the course despite this.

I have been asked to provide DWP with my course/term dates and hours of study and my university figures would take me about the allowed hours... they do not reflect what I have been doing at all !

I have an appointment with a student support finance advisor on Monday but thought it would be good to go in with some idea of what is happening.

Thank you in advance for any help.
