    Hi I'm currently studying with the OU and I received part time funding for my course however I decided to change this to full time as I wish to use this course as pathway to a conventional uni and intend on doing this ASAP I don't want to delay and take 2 years to finish the course and also I found out that unless I don't finish this course in one academic year then I will have to pay.

    I sent a letter through post informing student finance of the change I intend on studying full time ( template from their website). They sent me an email today stating whether i made a mistake by choosing "studying full time" that most OU courses are part time. Have I wasted time in doing all of this? Does part time finance cover 60-90-120 credits with OU?

    PLEASE HELP ASAP I WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL!!

    Studying at a full-time equivalency of 120 credits per year at the Open University is still considered Part Time study for finance purposes as a distance education provider.

    So you'll be increasing your study intensity to 120 hours, but remaining on a part time student loan.
