    As far as I'm aware, no.

    In order to qualify for student finance (including maintenance loan) you need to be going to a brick university (not online) and to be going full time. If you want to do part time you can get finance for your tuition fees at a brick uni but not maintenance.

    Yes you can get student finance for the open university- I'm not certain but I think you can get it for other places as well.

    It might be a new thing I'm not sure. All I know is that when I was researching universities I found out this information for the OU.
