M.E. can have a big impact on your life and change your experience and view of education.
The support available varies but if you are well enough to do some learning, it can improve your wellbeing.
If you are a child or young person, you will probably have to change the way in which you study but in most cases, with support, continuing your education should be possible.
If you are an adult, depending on how severely affected you are, a community education class or distance learning course could enable you to learn something you really enjoy, improve your skills or study for a qualification.
If you are a student or are about to become a student, please visit our Student hub.
If you are claiming benefits, the rules about what you can do are complicated and vary according to the benefit you are claiming, the type of course that you want to study, your age and whether the course is considered full or part time.
