Some of you may know that I am studying for a degree with the Open University. Just opened my emails this evening to discover that under financial support rules I have to complete within 6 years. At my current level of study it is going to take 7 years (Completed 3 years), if I don't complete with 6 years they will take my financial support away from me. I am completing the modules in order and within each 9 month period that I do them, I am comfortable working at this pace because (and I usually do) I generally experience lengthy periods when I am not able to study to the health issues, and know that when I recover I can catch up. If I intensify my studies and fall ill there is no way I will be able to catch up. Going to speak to the financial and learner support tomorrow but really worried that they won't understand. Feel yet another lengthy bout of form filling and medical evidence suppliant coming on, they already know I am disabled student, with a complete DSA assessment that they have access too
