Student Fince Under & Post Watch
This is more like a 2 part question.
I am currently in first year at Open University in part-time study with Student Finance. And I am working full-time as an IT Systems Administrator.
I am busy thinking of applying for a postgraduate Fulltime study at Birbeck Uni and apply for the government postgraduate Fee loan as think I have sufficient work experience to apply.
- Could I apply for the postgraduate Loan while getting undergrad finance?
- If I can and I pass the postgrad course after 1 year (Fulltime) or 2 years (Part-time) and I start paying for the postgrad finance. Will I not be able to get funded for the undergrad finance?
- Also, would this be difficult to do? Study part time (OU), Study full-time/part-time(Birbeck) and work full-time.
So my plan:
~ Work Full Time ( While studying)
~ Study BSC Natural Science (Physics) at Open University - Finish in the next 4.5 years.
~ Study MSc Computer Science at Birbeck - finish 1 year(full-time) or 2 years (part-time).
Apologies if this sounds complicated or stressing :O
And i welcome and feedback!
Student finance will only be able to fund you for one application at a time, so you will not be able to get simultaneous funding for under-grad and post-grad.
If you did complete your post-grad then we would not be able to fund you for any other qualifications that are equivalent or lower to this one, after you have graduated.
