Hi all,

I have alrrady done a cursory search but can't seem to find the answer to my query so I am wondering if you could help me.

I am looking to study a STEM degree at one of my local universities however it only runs on a full time basis.

In the last year I have been diagnosed with a severe mental disability (mental health and not a learning disability, autism etc) so much so that I receive PIP and the required treatment is not available on the NHS. Due to my condition I cannot work or study full time as this can make things worse then it already is.

Do you think it would be a reasonable request to uni that I would like to study the course but it needs to be part time only and are they likely to support that?

If you feel that's what best for you, then it is very reasonable. If they refuse, (if you'd be willing) you could ask about doing half in person and half online.

Thank you. I am glad it is considered a reasonable solution. I will email them then and see what they say, worst case is its a no and I have to look elsewhere.
