Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    The MA I am applying for is by distance learning at a UK university and I live in England. The course information states that it can be completed in 2-5 years. I am planning to do 60 credits a year as I work full time. This would mean I complete in 3 years. Can I apply for the new postgraduate loan?

    Hi nina47

    You will be able to apply for a prt-time postgraduate course for 2-4 years.

    Thanks for getting back. So can I apply for the loan for an MA course distance learning which allows up to 5 years to complete as long as I state I will take 3 years?

    Do I state this on the application form?

    I understand from other replies that the course fees would be paid over 2 years even if I take 3 years to complete and that does not seem to be a problem
