    Hi there,

    I have a choice between Edinburgh Business School Distance Learning MBA and another university. I noticed that to get funding from student finance for a postgraduate degree, an intensity of 50% is required.

    I understand that the degree must be done within 4 years to get funding but I am confused about whether or not EBS Distance Learning MBA gets funding as it is a self-paced degree. This means that there is no time limit explicitly mentioned. I intended to finish it within 1-2 years but I'm worried that I may not receive funding for it as it doesn't have a structured time limit.

    Also, the fact that I couldn't find a link to the course on the student finance website is worrying. Will an update be made soon or is the course just not allowed?

    Thanks
