Sorry if this is the wrong area, but it was the only one I could find regarding funding.

I’m quite a mature student and for the last year I’ve been looking to study an MSc in Criminal/Forensic Psychology and/or Criminology, at the OU.

The only issue I’ve got is, as it’s a distance learning Post-Grad course, they want the first module’s fee upfront before they send out a confirmation letter for me to show the SLC, in order to get my funding.

Simply put, I don’t have the money to pay the first module (the last 12 months has really played a part in that) and obviously until I send the SLC a confirmation letter, they won’t pay me the student loan.

I’m wondering if there’s any other loan, grant, bursary etc I could apply for, prior to my student loan coming through, in order to pay that fee, for the first module?

Thank you for any help you can give me!

(NB: A c/c etc is completely out of the question).

Hi Dean, we advise you to speak to your university about any other funding available as they will be able to assist more with this query.
Thanks, Isaac
