    Hey guys, i'm new to this forum and i'm applying for student finance, and i'm just looking for some help.

    I'll be studying my BA in English lit in october with the open uni, and i've been having trouble with the student finance applicaiton..
    i've been told that when applying for student tuition loans, even if the course is full time (120 credits a year) that you have to apply via the part-time application, is this correct?

    The amount it's saying i'm entitled to is 2700, but for both modules it's costing 2700, which altogether is 5400..

    Basically i just need some advice from anyone who has already applied

    Thanks guys

    Hi there.

    All Open University courses are considered Part-Time because they're not based at brick unis. If the two modules are studied in separate years then you would apply for the next year and be given £2,700 for each one. If it's £5,400 for one year and you can only apply for £2,700 this means the OU may have fees showing incorrectly on their database.
