I was wondering if you would be able to assist, I am looking to study a BSc course with OU and am looking into the Student Finance option.
I am currently studying part time for a Diploma of Higher Education in Railway Operations Management which is due to end soon and I am interested in studying for a degree in physics.
I currently have a student loan to cover the cost of the DipHE which was studied part time, would I be able to obtain a 2nd loan for the costs towards a BSc?
I have read on the NUS,
'If you are studying a higher level than the qualification already gained they will be eligible to receive funding up to a maximum of 16 years for a part-time course.'
But I have also read on the NUS,
'England from Student Finance England and you started your end-on course on or after 1 September 2012, both courses must be either full-time or part-time, and you must begin the end-on course no later than five months after completing your previous course, but not necessarily at the same university or college. You can only get a tuition fee loan for one year of your end-on course.'
I'm just wondering if you would be able to clarify or if you are aware of the best place to get more information, any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you are studying a higher level through the OU, you will be able to apply for a tuition fee loan to help pay the costs of the course.
