    Probably a lot on here, but I want help. Because I got EMA in my first college year, will it automatically carry on when I start again in September, or do I have to contact them to say im still at College?

    You probably won't need to reapply - fromhttp://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Educatio.../EMA/DG_066955:

    Check whether you need to fill in an application form this year
    Did you get EMA last year?

    If you got EMA for 2008/09, you may not need to complete another application form for 2009/10.

    Who needs to complete an application form for 2009/10?

    You’ll need to fill in a 2009/10 application form if:

    * you haven’t applied for EMA before – or you weren’t entitled to it in 2008/09, but think you might be now
    * you got EMA for 2008/09, but you think you may be entitled to a higher level of support this year because your household income circumstances have changed
    * you got EMA for 2008/09 because you were doing an Entry to Employment (e2e) programme

    Who doesn’t need to complete an application form for 2009/10?

    The ‘EMA guarantee’ means you automatically get EMA payments at the same rate for up to three years, even if your household income goes up. This applies up to the year in which you reach 19.

    So if you got EMA last year, you weren’t doing an e2e programme and your circumstances haven’t changed, you don’t need to complete a form for 2009/2010. Just enrol at your learning provider for 2009/10, and you’ll continue to get your EMA payments.
