I'm in a bit of a pickle, trying to find funding for a MA in Media, Culture and Education at the IOE. They provide a Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) studentship worth up to £10,845 + tuition fees, however that is very limited and there is no guarantee i'd get it. I was looking into personal development loans from Barclays but they only go up to £10,000 and my course costs £5,500 so i'd need additional help for living costs etc. any advice?
Anyway i'm wanting to do a PGCE in further education after my masters to become a media studies teacher. If i took out the personal development loan would i have to start re-paying it back straight after finishing my masters even if i was still a student on a PGCE FE course? (which is funded by student finance). I wouldn't have a job and would still be in full time education. I'm currently going into my 3rd year of Sociology and Media Ba(Hons). Any suggestions on what to do?
