    Hi,

    I'm a mature student, who wants to study an online access course
    to apply for a Physiotherapy degree. I can't go to the college to study the access course as I can't afford to give up my job yet.

    Can anyone advise please where I can apply for the funding? The Advanced learner loan doesn't apply to this course as I will be doing it
    online.

    There is some information on the website, where I will be doing the course from. But all of the info is for young people mainly and people in need. Even a partial funding would a super help. I'm not on a high flying salary hence any help would be ace. May be is it the best to apply to a local hospital trust? To my surprise there is a lot of help for undergrads, but how about mature students who need this additional qualification.

    Regards

    I'm not sure the advanced learner loan does exclude online Access courses. It needs to be QAA approved and with a recognised provider. If it isnt then theres a good chance the unis wouldnt accept it anyway.

    Talk to advanced learner loans or the access course people . You can also look up a suitable distance learning course here.
