    Hey guys x

    I am looking for some support and advise on being a single parent going into Uni.
    I am currently living with my son who’s in primary school and I have decided it’s time for me to educate myself and get into something I have been looking into for a long time.
    I am currently on the old system with benefits so working tax credit and child tax credit. I am also working part time however that will change and I will leave my job once I start full time uni.
    Please could anyone tell me what it’s like with benefits and the loans? Will I be struggling or is it something that can be done without financial difficulties?
    also will I need to move over to universal credit once I’ve made the change with my job?
    exciting times ahead however very nervous about the financial side!

    thank you in advance
