during freshers week you'll be in week one of your timetable; going to proper lectures, practical, tutorials etc so you'll miss a fair bit of the stuff that goes on during the day

hey shelly theres a part on the form to add dependants name, D.O.B. and relationship to u but im not sure if its all we need to do....hopefully at the bursary info session on the 14th will tell us more. :smile:

hey prettygirls, its def long birth certs we have to send in, its says on the forms the long one which shows our name as well as the childs.....the form from child benefit is just to show your entitlement...suppose its just to prove they are our children, lol....hope this helps...:smile:

phoned bursary people to check if i was filling out form ok as i have 2 wee kids a 2 and 3 year old and apparently i have to score it all out as im not entitled to any extra allowances just the £6055 is it, as my wife earns over £6000 per year

I can't quite remember how, but it is has something to do with child tax credits, you can recieve parents learning allowance. It is talked about in the bursary talk, so it might be worth waiting before sending your forms away, or phoning up the finance department in the student guidance center, and ask their advice.
Sorry I can't be of an more help... but I know there is something. And you are entitled to it, so don't just let it go :smile:

just checked again with bursary people ,got somebody else this time who was also very nice and very helpful, he says that the parents learning allowance is not means tested but to be eligible for it you have to qualify for the other dependants allowances for 1st ,2nd child which is means tested and because my wife earns more than a certain amount, i am not eligible for theses allowances so i dont get parents learning allowance either which i did get last year from studentfinanceni. i am just entitled to basic bursary same as anybody else as it stands.

Hi again...I too am just off the phone to the bursary people...the lady told me that I only need long birth certs for the kids.....I had just ordered one for myself as well which I had no need to do...It doesnt state that on the forms though...they must think we are made of money:s-smilie: .......7 working days for them to arrive...but at least I can send my short one in with sb1 form....
