    I've read that I can study a part-time OU degree in certain BSci subjects and get a student loan even if I've already got a degree (I graduated last year but wanting a change of career).

    My questions are:
    1. Can I get funding to study a BSci degree?
    2. Does it have to be part-time?
    3. Can I go to any uni or does it have to be the Open Uni?
    4. Does it have to be certain BSci degrees or can it be any BSci degree?

    Thanks

    1. In certain STEM subjects, yes. Here's a list: http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/fees-a...qualifications
    2. Yes, it has to be part-time.
    3. You can go to any uni, but it has to be part-time - contact individual universities for a list of degrees which are eligible for a second tuition fee loan.
    4. Certain subjects.
