    Hi guys just wondering if there are any financial help available for people who are considering taking a course online?

    Im planning to study radiography next year 2015 and considering I have been working full time for the past 3 years I need further qualifications but I cannot stop working because I still need to pay the bills.

    I found this website with good reviews distancelearningcentre
    they are offering the perfect course for me
    (Access to higher education for health professions)
    but it would cost me about 1k for the entire course is there any way for me to get a loan for this or even just a little bit of help funding this?

    I am living in cardiff and have looked at student finance wales
    they state that they do offer financial help for part time distance learning but it should be on a gov funded college or uni, or if it is a private institution (applicable to me) it should be an accredited course..

    but thats the thing I do not know if my course is accredited for funding or not..

    can someone help please.. :confused:

    Student Finance will only fund uni-level study, so you can't get this for an Access course.

    I'm not sure how funding works for level 3 qualifications but the college itself allows you to pay monthly or fortnightly to spread the costs which is better than paying it all in one go.
