I'm currently applying for the BSc Data Science course at the Open University. Course code R38 starting in February.
I already have a DipHE In Economics achieved in 2019 funded by student finance loan.
My questions are
1) Is this Data Science course exempt from ELQ rules so will I get part time funding?
2) When I put the course details into my student finance application (course being 6 years part time and applying for first year funding) it says "Open university have told us your tuition fee this year is £6935. Is this correct?" The actual amount part time is £3462 so should I just correct it to that?
3) Will student finance fund the whole £3462 or will I have to pay a portion myself.
4) If in the future, say I wanted to study full time, can I use the student finance loan to pay half and me pay the other half or will I lose funding if I did that?
Thank you in advance
