    Good Day all (BTW Just saw the Title again... apologies for this :/ )

    This is more like a 2 part question.

    I am currently in first year at Open University in part-time study with Student Finance. And I am working full-time as an IT Systems Administrator.

    I am busy thinking of applying for a postgraduate Fulltime study at Birbeck Uni and apply for the government postgraduate Fee loan as think I have sufficient work experience to apply.

    - Could I apply for the postgraduate Loan while getting undergrad finance?

    - If I can and I pass the postgrad course after 1 year (Fulltime) or 2 years (Part-time) and I start paying for the postgrad finance. Will I not be able to get funded for the undergrad finance?

    - Also, would this be difficult to do? Study part time (OU), Study full-time/part-time(Birbeck) and work full-time.

    So my plan:

    ~ Work Full Time ( While studying)

    ~ Study BSC Natural Science (Physics) at Open University - Finish in the next 4.5 years.

    ~ Study MSc Computer Science at Birbeck - finish 1 year(full-time) or 2 years (part-time).

    Apologies if this sounds complicated or stressing :O

    And i welcome and feedback!

    Hi there.

    Student finance will only be able to fund you for one application at a time, so you will not be able to get simultaneous funding for under-grad and post-grad.

    If you did complete your post-grad then we would not be able to fund you for any other qualifications that are equivalent or lower to this one, after you have graduated.
