    when trying to apply for a loan for full time study with the OU i get the message:
    You have indicated that you are undertaking a course at the Open University. This means you may be eligible for financial support, but you cannot apply using our online service.

    Please refer to the Open University Website for more information on the financial support available and how to apply.

    then when searching the OU website the only information it gives is to go to the studentfinance website to apply for a loan how do i get through this?

    thanks in advance richard

    Hi Bainzy,

    OU courses are classed as being part time for the purposes of student finance. Applications for part time courses aren't available yet which is why you can't apply yet.

    Once applications are available you'll be able to apply through you online account. Part time students can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the course cost.

    Hope this helps,
Do you think parents should charge rent?
