    Hey there !

    I want to abandon my University in Poland and begin studying in UK, I'd like to pick up some job and part time course at Open University.

    I heard that in order to receive loan that can cover my Tuition fees I have to work in England for at least three months, is that true ? I can't find any information that would confirm that.

    If I will do that is it sure that I will get my loan or final decision can depend on someone's private mind ?

    And in unlikely event of failing studies, do I have to repay whole Tuition Fee ?

    Thanks in advance and wishing you good night for those night owls who are not sleeping already.

    Ps. Sorry for my English, is not that perfect yet but I hope I'm clear enough

    If you've been resident in the EU for the last three years, you should be entitled to a tuition fee loan. There are some specific rules relating to part time study, which you can read here- http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...dents#navmoney

    The decision is usually straight forward and won't depend on one person's opinion. There's usually only doubt about the situation if it's unclear where you would be considered a resident (e.g. if you owned a house in the UK but currently worked abroad) or if someone is trying to prove they are independent of their parents for the maintenance loan.

    If you fail or drop out, you only have to repay what you have borrowed, but tuition fees are paid in advance, so if you were to drop out mid year, you might have already paid for a few extra months, which you will then have to pay back.

    I hope that's all clear. The tuition fee part of your plan is probably more straightforward than your plan to find a part time job!

    You mention failing - are you talking about completing the year and failing or dropping out part way through the year? if it's the former, you'd pay under the normal terms - 9% of anything over £21k per year.
