Hello.

Just a couple of questions regarding the finance for the Open plus route.

I have previously studied at degree level, leaving university a couple of months into my second year.
From what I understand, this means I would have 2 years worth of funding left.

With the Open plus route, the first part of the degree is funded as part time study, with the brick University study period lasting two years and being funded as full time study.

Would this mean I would be fully funded for the entire duration?

Thank you for your time.

Hi,

Thanks. Was that full time study and did you gain any qualification?

Thanks,

Okay. We wouldn't your full time previous study when looking at the part time funding for the study with the OU. If you don't gain a qualification from that study, we won't count that study when you switch to full time. We will count your previous full time study though. Eligible students are entitled to full funding for the ordinary duration of their course, plus one additional year, minus any years of previous study. So, for a 3 year course with 2 years of previous study your entitlement calculation would be:

3 + 1 - 2 = 2 years remaining.

Remaining years of entitlement are added to the final years of the course. As you'll be doing the final 2 years you would be able to apply for full funding in both years.

Regards,
Stuart
