If you are a parent or about to become one, you may be eligible for extra financial support depending on your circumstances. This page explains what financial help Home/EU students might get from student finance (UK government student support), welfare benefits or Queen Mary University of London, if you meet the eligibility criteria for these different types of funding, depending on your individual circumstances.

It can often be useful to discuss your options with a Welfare Adviser, especially if you have specific questions about your circumstances.

You can also look at the Queen Mary information for pregnant students which explains factors to consider such as taking time out of your studies, submitting Extenuating Circumstances if you are unable to sit exams or complete coursework, and what exam support you may be entitled to. 

If you and your family have been affected by the Coronavirus situation, you may find it useful to have a look at our webpage Your money and the Coronavirus situation

You may also find it helpful to look at the Money Advice Service's information on what help you may be eligible for, as a result of the impact of the Coronavirus on your individual family circumstances.
