    Yes you can normally transfer your credits. Depends on what you've done this year and what you want to do at the ou. You will still get funding but. Dont think you get the same living allowance etc because they expect you to work or live at home. What degree are not doing atm?

    With the new fee it is 5k per 120 credits. The equivalent of 1 years full time studying

    If you've only been at a brick university for 1 year then you should get some funding from student finance. Whether it'll cover your whole course, I don't know. Usually you're entitled to the length of your degree + 1 year - so if you were studying a 3 year full time degree you'd be allowed 4 years funding if you had to retake a year for whatever reason. I'm not sure it's so clear when going from full-time to part-time or vice versa. But you should get the majority covered, at least. These are questions you really need to be directing at the OU and the student loans company though
