Hi Aj84,

Psychology is an exception course if studied part time so you will be eligible for funding (tuition fee loan and maintenance loan) for these part time courses you have listed even if you already hold a degree

Even if it’s open uni course ?
Hi Aj84,

Yes, Open University courses are always classed as part time from a student finance perspective although you would only be eligible for a maintenance loan if we receive medical evidence that distance learning is your only option

Thanks,
Calum

What classes has medical evidence? I care for some one and I am dyslexic
Hi ,Aj84

We would need confirmation from a medical professional that distance learning is your only option for study, having dyslexia and caring responsibilities may not necessarily be sufficient unfortunately

Thanks,
Calum

Hi Aj84,

Biological Sciences is also an exception course if studied part time so you will be able to get funding for this course if you already hold a degree qualification

Thanks,
