    Student Loans & Carers Allowance advice please? 10th Aug 10 at 3:02 PM
    Hi there...
    I will be starting University this September and am currently in receipt of Carers allowance for my disabled child...will I loose my CA? Is there anything I can apply for funding wise? I will be on campus approximately 12 hours per week but it is still classed as a full-time degree...

    Our earnings as a couple are under £25,000 but the loss of the CA will be huge to us as I will be paying out on transport costs back and to from Uni.... (am over 25 so rail card is out of the window!) Any advice greatly appreciated...a rough estimate from the student loan people puts me at getting around £5000 per year...but this will hardly cover my rail costs let alone books etc ......
