I read on the forum that Student Finance will cover 1 year of repeats. How many credits are counted towards a whole year? I am studying part-time and doing 60 credits per year. I want to defer from 1 module and start it next year. I have already failed 1 module(30 credits) and also will restart it next year.

I believe it to be Full Time x1 year, and Part Time x2 year, so that means 1 OU year of 120 credits or x2 year of 60 credits or below.

Because it can impact your studies so much, I would contact student finance directly and get a direct and clear answer from them though.

You can get 16 years of finance from student finance England if you are a part time student.

Yes, it seems a ridiculous long time. However full time students can get four years, and part time students get 4x that long. I train new OU staff (sometimes). Funding is one of the things I train.

Hi Iain,
Thanks for the reply.

Does it matter how many credits I will study during these 16 years?
(I don't plan on studying that long but would like to know, just in case)

Thanks

As long as you are studying at least 30 credits then you will be fine
