I am studying online for a teaching degree, and currently have received a scholarship towards my degree from the department of education. Do I need to declare this?

Hi @MrsMac

 

A big welcome to our Community.

 

I am thinking the question - Are you a full time student enrolled at a school, college or university? - has confused you perhaps.

We would understand enrolment  can be online or otherwise. However the real question is if your study load is considered to be a full time one. Should you still not be sure see Scholarships - supporting information It allows for a private ruling application if still in doubt. Alternatively speaking to your scholarship provider can be useful also - often they are aware.

 

Thanks for your posts.

Warm regards

Thank you, I had already tried this tool but was looking for clarity around 'full time student' vs online student as I am studying via correspondence.
