So I was looking into studying with the OU to study Psychology and wanted to do it as a full time student, doing 120 credits a year. I was originally planning to go to Bournemouth Uni but circumstances have changed, so was looking to study as a FT student over 3 years anyway.
I tried looking into it and most study with OU as Part time students, but I want to study for three/four years, not six. So when applying for Student Finance would I be considered studying full time or part time as it's with OU? I did email OU asking them but they gave me a very vague answer about how most are PT so it would be part time and studying FT would take more hours per week. I have those hours extra and really want to at least try FT.
So would it still be PT as the course costs less per year in tuition or would it be FT because I would be putting in the hours and work?
I'm just a little confused about what to put when applying as it's not all very clear.
What's your story?
