Hi.

Have nearly decided to do an OU degree in 2003, but haven't as yet found
much info on whether the govenment "allow" student grants for OU
students. I'll be 21 when I start the degree and was hoping of some sort
of loan to help out with the fees.

Does anyone have any advice of knowledge of this?

Cheers

Will

You can get up to (I think) 300ukp a year loan. Also the fees can be
reduced (or removed completely in Scotland) if you're poor and/or get
state benefits.

Student Grants, Ha! You've been out of education for a while
then!!. Back in 94 or 95 they were abolished and replaced with the
Student Loan!!

Ah I thought there wasn't something right about that word "Grant."

The OU will send you details & forms on the loan structures
available to you.

Good luck

Your OU fees will be waived if you're on income support or can prove
low-income. The OU has its fees paid for by the government. Your
regional office should be able to provide further details.
