Want to self fund courses even though I can very much get funding Watch

    I am unemployed at the moment.

    I had done sort of back office jobs and call centre jobs.

    I just completed a short open university 30 credit course which I paid for myself.

    I could get funding for things like the open university but I don't want to.

    I am planning on maybe saving what I can when I get jobs and maybe paying for a course at a local college part-time even if I happen to be unemployed again when I do.

    Thing is I don't mind not having a degree and would happily work at it, at a leisurely pace
    as I can't see it helping my jobs prospects. Im nearly 28

    Has anybody else not liked the idea of getting funding for their part time study?

    It makes zero financial sense to self-fund when you can get a student loan to pay for it. I suggest you read this: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/stu...n-fees-changes
