Hi

I am in my late twenties and have finished my full time work with a view to beginning a BSc (Hons) degree with the Open University in October. I will be applying for a tuition loan as a part time student. My question is whether I will be entitled to a maintenance loan as well as the tuition loan? (I will be living with my parents whilst completing the degree)

Thanks

To get a part time maintenance loan when distance learning you would have to have a disability that means you can't study at a university.

Hi, as claireestelle has mentioned,

Open University students are eligible for a Tuition Fee Loan only. However, new students who commence their studies from 2018/19 studying a Distance Learning course due to a disability will be eligible for the Part Time Maintenance Loan. Evidence will be required to prove the student is unable to attend due to a disability for us to award this to them. You can apply online here http://ow.ly/u85F30kGtcp

Warm regards, Aisha.

If you’re eligible for DSA would that mean you’re also eligible for part-time maintenance loan while doing distance learning, the actual criteria isn’t clear anywhere

Hi,

In order to be eligible for a part time maintenance loan if you're studying distance learning, you need to provide evidence on why your disability means that you need to study via distance learning.

Thanks, Duncan.
