Postgraduate loans

If you are applying for a postgraduate taught or research based Masters in 2017/18 you may be eligible for a postgraduate loan for up to £10,280 as funding towards your living and course costs. This loan is normally for those who reside in the UK or are a EU national and you have to apply for a full standalone master’s course worth 180 credits which is UK based to be eligible. This loan will be sent straight to your bank account in three instalments over the year of study.

Similar to a undergraduate loan, you will not need to pay for this loan until you are earning over £21,000 and have completed your course. Not all courses are eligible for funding so please get in touch with admissions for more information on the loan and see if your course qualifies for it.

Please see the Student Finance England website for more information.

Further information on how to apply and eligibility criteria can also be found on the website.
