Hi all, I've been accepted on to a nursing degree (grin) and I start in the spring. I'm currently finishing another course and claiming benefits as I'm a single parent.

Can anyone advise me on how the NHS bursary will affect any of my claims? I've been told it won't affect Child Tax but will affect Income Support and Housing Benefit. Does anyone have experience with this? I've googled the life out of this and I've spoken to the council and DWP but no one can give me a clear estimate until I'm receiving the bursary and I just want a rough idea of what I'll have to live on.
