Think you can’t afford to do Postgraduate Qualification? Think again!
If you're a UK resident and looking to study your Postgraduate qualification you can now apply for a loan through Student Finance England and borrow up to £10,609.
This means that it is not only Undergraduate students who can have the cost of their studies funded through a Student Loan that is paid back as you earn. Students who meet the below requirements and start an eligible Postgraduate Masters course will be able to apply for a loan to help with course fees, materials or living costs.
Key facts about this loan:
- The non means-tested loan is available to students under 60 years' old who are residents in England, or EU students who have lived in the UK for the past 3 years.
- If you're starting a Master's degree, you could get a Postgraduate Master's Loan to help with course fees and living costs.

- You cannot get a loan if you already hold a postgraduate qualification.
- The earliest you will start to repay is the first April after your course is completed, or you exit your course. You pay back 6% your income above £21,000.
