    Hello
    I am currently in my second year of an open university degree. Will I be eligible to apply for a part time maintenance loan for the next part of my module which starts in October 2018? This will be for 60 credits and will classed as my 3rd year. I find it a little confusing as some forums advise that only new students can apply for a part time maintenance loan which I would find rather unfair if this was correct.
    I have also been on the gov website and it also states only disabled students who are distance learning can apply for a part time maintenance loan...is this correct?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately only new part time students from the academic year 2018/19 will be able to apply for a Maintenance Loan.

    You are correct also new Student Finance England students from academic year 2018/19, studying a part time distance learning course due to a disability are able to apply for a Part Time Maintenance Loan.

    Thanks Rona
