    Saas bursary

    Hi there, I have been accepted for university and my saas funding has just came through, I am a single mum to one on uc and work part time. I will be giving up work to study full time. But I am worried about getting into debt with housing again and paying full rent. My uc date is the 3rd to the 2nd each month if I attach my saas amounts is it possible someone is able to work out if I would get help in regards to housing, I currently get £380 per month that covers all aspects of my rent. And paid directly to them.

    Hi Christine

    Sorry can you show me the totals at the top there or type them out?

    It is the annual amounts I need and also the course dates if you have them.

    Initial expenses:
    Student Nurses bursary:
    Dependant Allowance:
    Lone Parent Allowance:

    And to confirm, there is no maintenance loan?

              Okay so that all counts (except for initial) and totals £15,943.

              Your AP is 3rd to 2nd and course starts on 6th September so first deduction is 9th October.

              You haven't given a specific end date.
              If your course ends between 3rd August and 2nd September then last deduction will be 9th August which is 11 deductions.
              If your course ends between 3rd September and 2nd October then last deduction will be 9th September which is 12 deductions.

              I will do the two sums.
              If course end date is 2nd September or before:

              15,943 divided by 11 = 1,449.36
              1,449.36 - 110 = 1,339.36

              £1,339.36 would be deducted off your total UC.
              Housing element would stay as it is but this deduction comes off full entitlement so could well leave you with zero little UC before rent is paid or leaves very little for rent to be paid.
              Deductions would be 9th October until 9th August
              If course end date is 3rd September or after:

              15,943 divided by 12 = 1,328.58
              1,328.58 - 110 = 1,218.58

              £1,218.58 would be deducted off your total UC.
              Housing element would stay as it is but this deduction comes off full entitlement so could well leave you with zero little UC before rent is paid or leaves very little for rent to be paid.
              Deductions would be 9th October until 9th September
              So without knowing your exact UC before deduction, you have said you are a single parent to 1 child with rent of £380, it looks like you won't be entitled to any UC at all from October onwards (unless you have extra elements on UC due to sickness or disability).

              I am really sorry. If it is any help, look out for your course providers details of discretionary funds. Generally Scotland are pretty good with discretionary funds and I have known them to provide help with living costs.

                    You could just call them 9th September or shortly after and just say you want to withdraw your claim as you will no longer be entitled to payments due to income.

                    Would save you all the bother of handing in your student finance stuff and waiting for them to work it out and possibly overpaying you.

                    The keyphrase is you would like to withdraw your claim.

                        So long as you close your claim after 3rd September you will get your payment on 9th September.
