I was wondering if any one has gone through the same/similar situation or maybe could help me or point me in the right direction
Will try to keep it short and to the point!
-Went to college a few years ago, got to second year and then dropped out.
-I applied to the CAO this year (not as a mature student as I will not be 23 on the 1st of Jan)
I plan to deffer for a year if offered a place and apply as a Mature student the next year accepting the course. I want to try and secure a course this year and save up money (I checked with a University and was informed this is acceptable)
-I am living on my own and have been for the past 3 years. (pay my own rent and utility bills and no financial support from family)
My question is.
Is it possible for me to apply for a grant as a mature student?
I will be paying for college on my own and will have to pay full fees as I have attended third level education previously.
Does having attended college previously exempt me from being able to get a grant? ( I was unable to see this information on the citizens information website)
Thanks for any help you are able to offer!
