    I received a "HEI BURSARY PAYMT" today, but I don't attend any university. I'm a part time student at the Open University, doing a short 5 month 30 points course, and I got a £265 bursary from them a few months ago, but I don't know why I have this one - especially as it's £875 and it makes no mention of it on the website.

    Anyone know if I have a legit reason for receiving this or have they made a mistake and make me give it back?

    Open University is an institution that offers part time and full time distance degrees. You can do short 10 point courses up to full degrees, lasting from two months to years. If you fulfill the right criteria you could complete an entire degree full of charge.

    free of charge did you mean?

    And what about recognition?

    Can you do A-levels on it?

    Yeaaah I meant free of charge xD. It's nationally recognised, not sure how well it's regarded compared to degrees from traditional universities. No you can't do A levels, it's higher education level.
