Hi all,I'm 33 and looking to start a BA (Hons) course with the OU in October 2017. From my research, it looks like Student Finance England will pay for the tuition fees, but my questions are:Will SFE provide full funding for the 3-4 years if I choose to pursue a full-time course (what I really want) and;Is it possible to get a Maintenance Loan to cover rent and other things?The reason I ask about the Maintenance loan is that there does not appear to any concrete information about this online. SFE website at gov.uk says they pay for a maintenance loan if you're in full-time education whatever your age, but other places, like forums, etc. say the opposite as OU is classed as part-time, although these posts are from a good few years ago, so possibly not relevant now.I am currently in receipt of Universal Credit as I am self-employed but it isn't going too well and I really want to get an undergraduate degree behind me so I can go for the kinds of vacancies that are suitable to my skillset, but sadly without a degree many employers (certainly in the public sector) will not currently give me the time of day.I hope someone can help answer those questions.
What should I do?
