    I'm thinking of studying for a first degree, possibly on a part time basis, as mature student. In principle, would I qualify for a student loan?

    There are conditions which apply to anyone when deciding whether they are eligible for a student loan. In principle if you have never been to Uni before then you would be entitled to student support, subject to meeting basic criteria such as residence in the UK/ EU being a UK/EU national etc.

    This should answer your questions, but if not , then post back. You can also talk to mature students on the mature students part of the forums, just in case you have any concerns about education.

    Hiya, you will probably be eligible if you don't already have a degree. You can always contact our financial advice team on [email protected] if you need help with anything financial.

    Thanks.
