Hi, could anybody help me with regards to student finance and childcare costs - I’m unsure how much or if anything I’d be entitled too when I begin studying (nursing) in September 2020. According to the calculator I’d get £6750 per year maintenance loan but no help toward childcare cost which would be around £700 per month (2 child) I think this may be due to my husbands salary, however it’s still going to be really difficult for me to afford the costs - are there any other options available does anybody know? Many thanks

Hi Donna,

We'll base your funding on your husband's income in the 18/19 tax year. Can you confirm roughly how much he earned then?

Thanks, Graeme

Okay, based on this you will be overscale for any Grants for Dependents, unfortunately. Does your husband expect his income to drop by more than 15% in the 20/21 tax year?

Thanks, Graeme

Thanks for confirming this - based on this, we won't be able to provide any grants, unfortunately. However, we'd recommend speaking to your university's Finance department: they may be able to offer more help and advice. It may also be worth contacting the NHS to see if they're able to help.

Warm regards, Graeme
