Part-time students and living costs

If you’re a Part-time Student, you will not be eligible for any Student Loans Company help towards your living costs. Instead you would be expected to continue with your claim for Benefits, stay in paid employment, or locate alternative sources of funding such as savings. Please see our page on Other Financial Information to get some ideas about other sources of funding.

There is an exception for students enrolled on Part-time courses due to ill-health or a disability, if your course has been specially adapted for you from a Full-time programme.
