  1. i have recently been accepted on a pgce course in spetember :) but with the new govt they have cut the bursary so i am very worried about money. is it possible to balance workload with a weekend job or are you entitled to a student loan from the student loans company because without the bursary i will struggle financially.

    The bursary of £600-odd per month is my living! Without it I would find funding my PGCE tough going as I came onto the course straight from uni (so had no prior earnings to support me). You are eligible for a student maintenance loan and a fee loan too and potentially the same grants and university bursaries you were entitled to as an undergrad. As for a job? I couldn't have done it. If you want an afternoon off of a weekend, in addition to essays, reports, planning and marking, you won't have time for work.
