Hi all,
Wondering if anybody has been in a similar situation to myself?

Starting uni in September! Doing a Primary Teaching degree.
I have two children under 4 so both will require 3 days a week childcare.
DS1 will get 15 free hours
DS2 won't be entitled to free childcare

DH will be a SAHD and a carer for DS1.
DS2 will be in childcare 3 days a week so DH can have a break as DS1 is very hard work and requires a lot of background house work/appointment arranging and travelling to appointments.
We also want DS2 to have the social interaction benefits of a nursery.

I've just done an estimate on student loans and it looks like with a maintenance loan, adult dependent grant and childcare grant I could get like £7000 per term?! That's not including tuition fees! It seems like a lot?
Can anyone tell me if that's right?

Is it your first degree?
