I have a complicated situation, my parents have just gone through a divorce and I'm currently working part time while studying part time at uni. For the last 2 years I haven't applied for a maintenance loan because I haven't need to due to the support off my parents living together. But now that has changed and I need a maintenance loan. However because I started my course in 2017 I've been told I can't get a maintenance loan as a part time student. If I changed to full time, would I be able to get a maintenance loan or not?

Hi there,

If you are attending university on a full time basis on a full time course then you are entitled to a Maintenance Loan.

The university said that even if I continue my course but change from part time to full time I will still not get a maintenance loan because I started the course in 2017?

Full time students are entitled to the Maintenance Loan regardless of when they started. This is unless you are studying as a full time student (increased intensity and credits) on a part time course which essentially means you are still subject to part time rules.
