I am looking to start my Bachelors in Engineering with the Open University. Before I do this I want to complete a smaller module to learn a bit more about studying with the OU.
On the directgov website it states it will be harder to get finance if you have completed "higher education" before, regardless of whether or not it was self-funded.
Will completing a single OU level 1 module (Specifically T174) effect my eligibility for student finance when I want to apply for my degree?
Thanks in advance!
Edit: Any help at all would be much appreciated. To clarify an "OU Module" counts towards a degree but doesn't stand for much on its own.I plan to pay for the single module myself, then apply for student finance afterwards for my degree

As Open University is part time there is more years of funding available. As long as any qualification you gain from this module is not a higher level of the course you wish to study then you will be ok to get full finance.
