    I'm a bit confused

    I remember looking into this last year and I think for a part time course you could get a fee waiver for upto 60 credits per year? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Just looked on the website and the funding for part time students is changing for the 2013/14 session. It says up to 119 credits per year now. Does this mean I would be able to study 90 credits and get the fee waiver for the full amount? Or would this be after the 1st year, ie funded for 60 credits in year one & rising to upto 119 in year two? I don't know where I'm getting this part from, don't know if I've read it somewhere or was told when I called the OU before

    I would phone the OU, and ask to speak to someone in the OUSBA department. Scotland's a bit more difficult than in England as they have different fee scales. But as far as I am aware the new funding is for part-time students only, and 120 credits would be classed as full time study.

    Thanks for your reply

    Yeah I think that is where they get out of it by saying up to 119 credits per year. Not planning on studying and more than 60 this year but still wondering for future years. Will give them a call tomorrow
