A few months back I was speaking to an adviser at the open uni on the phone. I was under the impression that if I applied for part-time tuition to cover the cost I would be able to study at a full-time rate if I felt I could?
I've just started selecting my modules (BSc Computing & IT with a second subject in Design).
60 credits - October '16 to June '17 for the first module which is £2786 - if I want to select 120 credits it will cost twice this, although there are different start dates available.
Would this mean that if I finished my first 60 credit module before June (February 2017 for example) could I then apply for another student loan to continue with the next 60 credits in February, or would I have to wait until the following year/June 2017 when the first module officially ends?
Sorry about all of this, I went from high school straight into work and I have no knowledge of this kind of stuff (yet)! It's a lot more confusing than I thought!
Thanks for your help
EDIT: I have been accepted for a student loan to cover 60 credits.
Or does it play no part?
