So i'm desperately looking for a grant. I thought I would have some to choose from as I come from a very low income, single parent background but it doesn't seem like that is enough to qualify for any? Has anybody any I might be missing?
Thanks

In addition to your student loan?
Theres normally a separate scholarships and bursaries page at your chosen institution.

If you come from a very low-income household, the university might have some sort of bursary/scholarship for you. Check on their funding page, usually, it will be automatically awarded based on your SFE income assessment.

If you are OK with posting where you're currently at/applying for, then maybe we can help?

Then that is all your uni offers.
Try a different uni.
Scholarships and bursaries come from everyone elses fees or if they have a rich benefactor.
Have you checked you have claimed everything you can with sfe as a single mother? Universal credit?

You havent been forthcoming in context or detail so not easy to answer.

There used to be government grants, now it's based on institution level scholarships.

Maybe you could take a degree apprenticeship/distance learning or get an employer to sponsor your degree (if you're going into accounting etc).
