    Hello,

    Due to illness, I need to retake some modules as an exams only student.

    Will I be eligible for student finance still?

    I am a part-time student and will only be sitting exams so be classed as an exams only student this academic year.

    I have not applied for student finance before and someone suggested I should consider it.

    Can I apply as an exams only student this academic year or wait until next year when if I pass will be a proper student on the part-time course?

    Regards

    Hi g00nies,

    'Exam only' students are sometimes classed as classed as an 'external/not in attendance' students. As you are not attending the course you are not eligible for fee loans etc

    When you start as a 'proper' student you would be eligible to apply for the funding.

    Regards,
