Hi

I currently already hold a degree, but i have seen you can study a part time degree and achieve funding if it falls under a stem subject. The degree i am looking to study part time is the BSc (Hons) Networking Infrastructure and Security through bradford college, validated by bolton university. Please could you confirm whether this falls under that exception rule, i believe this would be classed as computing.

Additionally i believe part time maintenence loans are now available, if studying 3 modules a year, how much student maintence loan would this entitle me too as an adult living on my own.

Thanks

Please confirm the course HECoS code - you can ask the university for this.

Additionally i believe part time maintenence loans are now available, if studying 3 modules a year, how much student maintence loan would this entitle me too as an adult living on my own.

That depends on the intensity you are studying and where you are living. You can view the figures here at the bottom of page 46 https://www.practitioners.slc.co.uk/...m-for-2021.pdf

I asked for the code and recieved this reply


"The HeCoS code is for institutions to use and is not a code that needs to be provided to students.

If you are completing the Student Finance application online then please type in the course name and the details should automatically appear in the drop down box."


This is the course itself https://www.bradfordcollege.ac.uk/co...y-requirements

Please advise

It's not a code that needs to be provided to students but it helps us answer your query faster.
Universities are usually fine to provide this when a student asks.

I don't need the code as I can get the information from the database myself, I just asked for it as it makes things easier when we are busy.

The "NETWORKING INFRASTRUCTURE & SECURITY PT" course at "Bradford college" with HECoS code 100365 is a part time exception course.

You can apply for a part time tuition fee loan http://ow.ly/4gXh30oSeZC, you can also apply for a part time maintenance loan http://ow.ly/VPDv30oSf0G

Thanks, Isaac

Hi, Just another question Isaac. Kirklees College offer the COMPUTING HNC which can be studied part time. Does this fall under the under that exception rule if studied part time and thus allow me to claim student finance for this course. Im unsure if this counts due to it being a HNC and not labled a degree, although i believe these HNC are funded through student finance. The link with the course is https://www.kirkleescollege.ac.uk/wp...e-21-22-V7.pdf

Thanks for your reply. Do you mean if studied part time over two years as one year would be classed as full time.

Would i be able to apply for the maintence loan as well if studied part time over two years because it falls under stem and its a degree level quilification even if its not a full degree? Would i also be able to apply for DSA and is the application done all through student finance website like it would be for a normal degree? Kind regards

You can't study a full time computing hnc course, only part time because the it's not a full time exception course.



You can find out more about the Part Time Maintenance Loan here https://www.practitioners.slc.co.uk/...ntenance-loan/
