    Claiming JSA and attending college 25th Jun 12 at 5:12 PM
    Hi please help. I finish work in Aug to start an Access to Higher Education diploma so I can then go on to university. When I first contacted JSA to make sure I could claim and my reasons for doing so (work cant accomadate hours I can work around my college course) she said it shouldnt be a problem. Since giving my notice in at work i have been told that i might not be able to claim jsa as the course i am doing is classed as full time even tho its only 14 hours a week. Can anyone advise??? If i cant claim JSA then what am i meant to live on??? I am a 35 yr old single mum.
