    Hi, I've found the following which gives lots of info about how the new part-time maintenance loans will work:

    http://www.practitioners.slc.co.uk/m...for-201819.pdf

    Could you please elaborate on the course eligibility for part-time maintenance loans for new students after 01-08-2018?

    I understand that full Level 6 degree courses will be eligible from September 2018 but Level 4 and 5 (Cert HE, FdA) courses will not be eligible until September 2019.

    However, please can you clarify the eligibility of a stand-alone (Level 6, 120 credits) BA (Hons) Top-Up course? These courses are designed for students with a previous Level 5 qualification such as a FdA in order for them to achieve a full degree but they are stand-alone and do not follow automatically from a FdA course.

    Will these ’Top-up' degree courses be eligible for part-time maintenance loans from September 2018?

    Will I be classed as a 'new student' for loan application purposes? I finished my FdA in 2014.

    Thanks

    Hi carrie,

    Firstly to answer your questions in regards to eligibility for Part time Maintenance Loan (PTML).

    Can you confirm the details of the top up course that you wish to study?

    What university are you wishing to attend and what course/subject and you wishing to study?


    Thanks
