Nailly - you would be able to access loans depening on DH's wages but no grants I am afraid. Still get tax credit thingies too if you are working. Have a look at the SAAS website. Cheers

oh gomez thanks that is a huge help

do you have to start paying loans as soon as you finish? what if you go on to do anoteher course

i realise this is dull

I need to be quick but I think you start paying back the year after you graduate depending on income level. So if you went onto another course then no as you wouldn't be earning enough. But I get feck all so am not 100% on the details. Have a swadge here love www.student-support-saas.gov.uk/index.htm.

You can get your fees paid towards depending on your household income. There is a grant now definitely for part time study but I'm not sure if you can get it for full time study. Will have to check.

Is it university you're going to? If so you can get a loan to pay the fees also a loan for living expenses. You won't hane to pay it back until you earn £2107 gross per month, and if you're supported by you're partner you don't have to pay it back either. Adn if you don't work or earn that much for the next 25 years they write the debt off!!!

You should be able to get assistance for college courses, speak to the college where you want to study and they'll tell you what you can do.
