Hi I would like to study Linguistics and the English language at Bangor University. I am 18 and don’t have any a levels or equivalent so I have thought about going through the Open University. I am aware that you can take credits from level 1 modules http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/modules but I do not know
how many total credits Bangor University requires(60-120?). I would also require a loan for this but I believe I have to pay this back and it reduces my loan entitlement at degree level. How severely would it affect my loan entitlement? By the way I live in England. Thanks.
What are the downsides?
