Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone had any information on this.

I'm currently doing an undergraduate degree in Audio Engineering (third year) but I'm going to be doing a Master's in Acoustics next year.
I've been thinking that it might be worth doing a foundation degree to get to grips with the maths & physics since that's not my background.
I would be doing the foundation year after my undergraduate but before my master's.

Would I be able to get funding for the foundation degree/course?
It's in a STEM field, not sure if that has any bearing.

Thanks,

Dipper

Hi Isaac,
So with mathematical science, would that only be for studying part time or is full time okay too?
E.g Certificate of Higher Education in Mathematical Science with the Open University

It would have to be part time.

Open University courses are classed as part time.

Thanks, Isaac

Great, so even with an undergraduate degree I'd be able to get student finance for a part time certificate of higher education in maths?

A Mathematics course is a part time exception course so your previous study shouldn't affect eligibility.
