Help .. my postgraduate masters loan not enough

I am grateful for my full time masters funding however, i just spoke with Universal Credit and my council and
I am not entitiled to ANY support (except council tax), i am so confused.
I will work on weekends but will never be able to pay montly rent as my children are also doing their undergraduate courses.
Please any advice on any grants, benfits or support i may be entitled to.

Hi Tanya,

That is the maximum capped amount for the Postgraduate Loan. You would need to speak to the financial department at the university, as they may be able to offer guidance and support.

Thanks, Clare
