    Open university

    I'm in SG for ESA and enhanced for PIP.
    Could I get any financial help to pursue an OU course (if I find one I can manage !)

    My understanding is NO. If you dont already have a degree, and you do full time, It is possible that you could get student loans. This would mean coming off ESA though.

    Open University seems quite appealing in that its much more flexible than a traditional university. Ive considered courses myself but the problem is funding it. You need to ask yourself if you can afford to pay the fees out of your ESA and PIP. Remember the flexibility means you only have to pay for a module at a time.
