    Basically, I was thinking of studying full-time with the OU, but as a mature student with bills to pay I wondered whether you could apply for a maintenance loan or maintenance grant for living costs??

    I tried looking on the student finance website but couldn't find anything about doing online degrees.

    Weird, i was wondering the same thing today.

    I tweeted them and I'm waiting a response, I'll let you know when they get back if you haven't already got an answer yourself.

    Fee loan, yes. Maintenance loan/grant, no. Regardless of how much you study with the OU you're never considered a full-time student for those purposes.

    I've just spoken to them and they said they only fund part time courses, if it helps.

    I received an email regarding funding this morning. Unfortunately, you're only entitled to a fee loan.
