Would I lose my tax credits as a full time student at uni?

I'm just trying to work out if I can afford to go to uni.

Thank you.

ooh I hope not? I am going full time in september, but DH will still be working full time. At the moment I work part time and we get working tax credits and child tax credits. I am interested in the answer to this too!

I am a lone parent and get full loans/grants/bursary.

None of these get classed as income for the purpose of tax credits, and as such I get child tax credit.

Good luck with your studies CookeMonster

Only the adults dependents grant is taken into account for tax credits.
