I post and read very occasionally, but some information has come to my attention and I was wondering if any of you know more about this and can advise me.
Firstly I had better let you all know where I have been over the past few months. Sadly 19 months ago my husband passed away very unexpectedly. I have been slowly rebuilding my life which has included my return to studying ......so hence my query.
Yesterday I attended the induction day for my forth coming PGCE course. The folk from the university came along to talk about disabled students allowance and mentioned that people with asthma can apply. However, as is usually the case with the student finance web site there is insufficient information! So I was wondering if any one out there had applied for this - either for themselves or their children.
My asthma is bad but I am fortunate that I have an excellent GP and chest physician who between them have brought it under control nearly 2 years ago.
If anyone has applied for this could you let me know if it was financially worth the trouble. I don't wish to sound money grabbing or uninterested but I am also trying to finish my degree course! So as you can appreciate my time is precious.
Many thanks for your help - in advance
