    I have a few questions about actually filling out the forms.
    I am starting a new job in September, its part time so I have applied for a full time Uni course on the OU, because the job is not a lot of hours, about 15 give or take, a week. When I was filling out the form it didn't ask for this info, is that because I didn't ask for a maintenance loan?
    Also because I have a job does that mean I can't apply for SF as a full time student? I know a lot of people who worked part time while at uni so i am assuming its allowed?
    And finally, I live with my mum still and my little brother is disabled, my mum is worried that me doing Uni will affect her benefits for him, I don't see why it would. I haven't applied for a maintenance loan because of my job, so it shouldn't affect that should it?

    Hi JayM1409

    The Open University only attracts part-time funding so you must apply on a part-time application form. You can only apply for the tuition fee loan to help pay the costs. Working will not affect your funding.
