Im at uni now part time but wanting to go back to college full time
Im a mature student and been working 20 hours a week the last year and spending 11 hours a week at uni.
All I can find is that id get £30 a week towards buying things but id need to move from area to start and then it means I will have to be in college 40 hours a week but if I work I lose the £30 a week.
So id have to work about 30 hours a week to pay rent and bills and course expenses since what im wanting to do(already been accepted) needs on the very first day £50 for going away for a few days and £25 for a hoodie and then I have to pay £20 enrollment fee
This is because the course im wanting to do is tourism so need a lot of funding.
The course is just a National Diploma
I know some councils let students claim housing benefit as they are low income but some dont.
If I got housing benefit and it covered most of my rent its fine as then id just work about 8 hours a week to help pay the rest and buy books and food etc.
