We Answered:

Here's a benEfit you can get already - remedial English classes

Your wife should explain her circumstances to her employer and seek paid work. [Did he know you were doing the same?]

She had no business making that deal with him lasting 5 years, if she cannot afford to feed her children.

Mature student finance (uk)?

We Answered:

Yes their are charities you write to and they also give you financial help. You have to come of all benefits but after all the charities help out plus the Uni grants (you get extra for having a family) you will be fine. Ask your Tutor for the list of Charities who will help you, this has to be done b4 you start the course as they only meet twice a year and don't want to miss the dead line. If you don't have a tutor yet go to the Uni that has accepted you and ask to speak to someone who will be teaching you or the student finance dept as you need that list now! Good luck
Like i said you will get extra help from the Uni to live pay rent etc, but you do need to start investigating this now. When i did this even my housing benefit was stopped but i got grants from 2 charities plus my course paid and a good few grand from Uni fund to live. You can also get a little part time job as although you are full time you will prob only have 3 lectures a week if that.

What are the Finance options for mature students?

We Answered:

It depends on the course that you take. In England chiropody and podiatry are two types of course covered by NHS funding, which are linked to NHS bursaries.

If you can get a place on one of these courses you will not have to pay any tuition fees as the NHS will fund them (as long as you are a home fee student - i.e. have lived in the UK for three years preceding the start of your course (and not purely for full-time education) and have no time limits on your stay in the UK)

If this is the case they will also give you a bursary depending on whether you study at diploma level (non-means tested bursary) or degree level (means tested bursary and small loan for living costs).

For more info see the links below for podiatry careers info or the following link for NHS funding details:

Mature student -a question about finance!(UK)?

We Answered:

You will be entitled to the maintenance grant and uni bursaries, also check with your university as most have "special" funds also available. As a full time student you can apply for housing and council tax benefit, also all part time work is tax free and not counted in your allowance, as long as you dont earn over £25,000. I also did a degree while raising two young children, it was a struggle, juggling everything, but I wasn't financially worst off and now days there is lots more help available to you, check this out with a lone parent adviser too. Believe me when I say it is well worth the struggle and hard work, I felt stuck in a trap of a life on benefits, single kids debts etc and now I have a great job I love which I couldn't of got before without my degree, I own my own home and no longer have to worry which bill I am going to skip this month. If you need any help with anything pls do not hesitate to mail me, I will help all I can. GL

Steve Said:

Im a mature student with kids over 14, does anyone know if I can get financial help over the summer?

We Answered:

I think there is no bar for financial assistance to the student. However, it may be mentioned that you may please consult NGO office and find out weather they have specific provision for affording financial aid to the students who have children over 14 years old. Good luck
