    *Good morning Suzie.

    1. Go here *https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-register-login
    2. Create an account
    3. Login and apply for finance for a new part time student

    You can get tuition fees and disabled students allowance for your part time open university course.

    Everyone is entitled to a certain amount of Student Finance in their lifetime, as long as they meet basic criteria, like residence.

    The Tuition Fee Loan and basic Maintenance Loan are not means-tested. If you go to a normal state uni, you will get a loan which covers all of your fees and another which makes a minimum contribution to your living costs. You can then be assessed for an additional means-tested amount, to top up your Maintenance Loan.

    If you are under 25, your additional amount of Maintenance Loan is usually based on your household income (the parents, parent or parent + step-parent with whom you live). How much you get from SF as a Maintenance Loan, depends on how much your parent(s) earn. Over a certain amount, you won't get anything other than the small minimum Maintenance Loan.

    If you are 25 or over, you are automatically considered as being independent from your parents (even if you still live with them). If you are going into a full-time degree and don't have other sources of income (like rent on property you own, significant interest from savings etc) then you will get the maximum Maintenance Loan

    Beware that the Maintenance Loan - even the maximum - isn't guaranteed to cover all of your uni living costs. It's designed to make a contribution rather than cover all of your outgoings. Many students have to work whilst at uni.

    It will not matter whether you are employed or unemployed when you apply.

    Apologies Klixx but the student is studying at the open university so no maintenance loan.
