ELQ rules

I have a foundation degree in Aeronautical Engineering which I study distance learning and used student finance (I’ve now paid off fully). Unfortunately my health has changed and I need to change careers.
I’m struggling to find a list of subjects that I could study as a second degree preferably full time that I would be able to get a tuition fee loan and maintenance loan for. I believe AHP degrees count but is there a definitive list of subjects so I can explore my options. Thank you.

What are the options if I study part time ?

I read STEM subjects can be exemptions if studied part time. What is the rationale for these subjects attracting funding part time but not full time ?
Would BSC (Hons) Computer Science, studied part time at Lincoln College be an exemption ? Would I be able to receive the tuition fee loan and a maintenance loan for the full 6 years it would take to complete it part time ?

Claire,

It’s definitely 6 years. I’ve spoken to the tutor today. https://enrolments.lincolncollege.ac.uk/webenrolment.aspx?page=~/webcontrols/coursedisplay.ascx&CourseInformationID=10947

Could the fault lie with how Lincoln College have submitted the info to yourselves ???

If it’s confirmed 6 years would I be eligible for tuition fee and maintenance loan funding, as above would it be exempt from the prior study rules because it’s a part time STEM subject?

Thank you greatly.

Hi Steve,

The 6 years is the part time equivalent which is correct and is considered an exception to previous study and equal level qualification rules. You just need to apply for this on your account.
