Hi, I am a single mother to a 10 month son. I have been accepted to study a degree in nursing full time this september. Do any students know if I will qualify to get housing benefit. Also what finance can i apply from student finance and from NHS
You have to look at the NHS bursary unit web site, you can also get a student loan (see student direct for this), child tax credit and child benefit. Any childcare will be paid for via the bursary unit. You can claim housing benefit but they will take everything that you have coming in into account. Full time students don't pay for council tax.
