    Thank you for taking the time to check this. ( This is my 1st post)

    BACKGROUND: Well i went to university about 2 years ago, i was studying Creative multimedia degree, which i really liked. But i had to drop out for personal reasons. So after almost 2 years out of uni i feel so lost and i am trying to get back to the education world.

    Question: So i want to change something, instead of doing the normal uni degree like the one i started i want to study an online degree. The main reason is i feel so behind among my friend circle, i was usually the smartest. And i plan to work full time and engage on personal projects and get my qualification at the same time. I have very small knowledge of Distance learning so if you could guide me please.

    - How would it work with UCAS application?
    - Would Student finance pay for me?
    - What are the best online universities that you can think of?

    I want to study the same thing as before which is Creative multimedia design, i do not mind if there is ICT or even business added to it.

    Thank you very much!

    Have you actually found a Distance Learning or Online course in this subject?
    Having googled, I cant find any at undergraduate level. The few 'multimedia' or 'communication' courses that are on offer at conventional UK Unis are all postgraduate.

    One possible course is with the Open University - BA/BSc (Hons) Design and Innovation - http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergr...cation/q61.htm but thats really a Design course not multimedia.

    In any case, application is directly to the University not UCAS for all distance learning degrees.
