    I have a few questions about actually filling out the forms.
    I am starting a new job in September, its part time so I have applied for a full time Uni course on the OU, because the job is not a lot of hours, about 15 give or take, a week. When I was filling out the form it didn't ask for this info, is that because I didn't ask for a maintenance loan?
    Also because I have a job does that mean I can't apply for SF as a full time student? I know a lot of people who worked part time while at uni so i am assuming its allowed?
    And finally, I live with my mum still and my little brother is disabled, my mum is worried that me doing Uni will affect her benefits for him, I don't see why it would. I haven't applied for a maintenance loan because of my job, so it shouldn't affect that should it?

    Hi JayM1409

    The Open University only attracts part-time funding so you must apply on a part-time application form. You can only apply for the tuition fee loan to help pay the costs. Working will not affect your funding.

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
