Hi, I'm very interested in doing a OU course, but they are expensive.

Are there any government schemes that will subsidise these courses

[q1]> If you are on benefit or low income you can get help direct from the OU.[/q1]
You are also eligible for part-time student loan of £500 1/3 way through each year's course. I am
studying for my degree through the OU because it is the only affordable way to get a degree plus you
can work (some employers also help if the degree/course is relevant to the job you do) and it fits
in with kids.

not when compared to other universities... I did my BSc with the OU, best value for money I've ever
had. they are also very cheap when compared with any training courses targeted at industry.

not any more, the ILA scheme was stopped as it was being abused by fraudsters.

The courses are free if you're unemployed or poor. Much recommended.
