    Hi,

    i studied for two years but left my degree on medical grounds.
    That was 5 years ago, now I want to start a different degree through the OU, is there any way to find out how much of my student finance funding I have left over?

    then I can work out how much I need to pay for myself.

    thank you!

    Hi Kayleigh,

    This will depend on the qualification you gained from your previous study.

    If you didn't gain a qualification then this means that you'll be entitled to tuition fees for each year of your OU course.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Mark-Lee

    thanks for your response.
    i didn't receive my qualification, I did complete the first year and have applied for credit transfer of this onto my new course.

    when I spoke with a SF advisor last month he said I would be able to use up the remainder of my allowance to pay module by module, but when that runs out I'd have to pay myself.

    is that the case? If so, I need to work out the budget I'll be working to, so will need to know what amount of Student Finance I have remaining.

    thanks! Kay

    Hi Kayleigh,

    No this isn't the case, we don't award funding module by module and apologies for the incorrect information.

    As you haven't gained a qualification you will be entitled to finance for each year of your new course.

    Thanks!
    Mark-Lee
