Can anyone help.
At the age of 28 I have decided I would like to go to uni next year. However, I have a mortgage so no sure what the best route is to take. It would only be a part time course as I would still need to work to pay our mortgage.
The Business course I was interested in was 4 years part time (Long I know). The fees are £600 per 20 credits. and there are 60 credits per year. That totals over £7000 for the course.
Who can afford to pay this whilst running a home and a mortgage.
As Im not familiar with the Uni experience can anyone offer some advice?
The Standard fee (per 20 credits) is £600. Most of our courses carry the standard fee of £600 per 20 credits. A few courses carry a non standard fee please check the list below to see if your course carries a non standard fee. A typical part-time course consists of three 20 credit modules totalling 60 credits per year. However some courses follow a different pattern and we advise you to contact your Faculty for clarification of credits studied in each year
How can I pay for Uni when I have a mortgage to pay. Watch

Does the university allow you to spread payments out over the course of a year? If so that wouldn't be too bad - about £150 a month.
Alternatively will your mortgage provider allow you to put your mortgage on interest only for 6-12 months so that you have less mortgage to pay each month?
If you can't do either of those then I would suggest deferring the course until next year and save up as much as you can before starting.

Part time students are entitled to apply for a tuition fee loan, as long as the course doesn't take any longer than 25% longer than a full time course. IE - 30 credits per year.Last edited by Tiger Rag; 13-07-2016 at 08:11.
