These schemes can help towards childcare costs and other costs associated with your course.
- A Childcare Grant is available to help with the cost of registered approved childcare if you are studying full-time
- The Parents' Learning Allowance can provide support if you are a full-time student with dependent children
- An Adult Dependants' Grant may be available if you have an adult who is financially dependent on you
The gov.uk website has further details on the Student Finance - Extra help.
Students may be also able to apply for Child Tax Credit or Universal Credit to help with the day-to-day living costs for dependent children
