I'm currently studying the equivalent of full time through OU so only receive tuition fee loan as its counted as part-time.
I would like to transfer to a physical university to study full-time for my final year which will be 16/17. Whether I will be eligible for maintenance loan and how much will be vital when making the decision.
I already have student debt from studying full-time over 10years ago (I got Ill and had to leave uni) and I'm concerned that this will affect my eligibility.
Please can you tell me what the criteria is for this situation and, if you can, whether I'll be entitled to the maintenance loan.

If you go into year 3 (final) of a course you will be eligible for 4 years of funding, minus any years of previous study you have done.
This is providing you don't already hold a qualification of the same level and the course is eligible for funding.
