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


    I have graduated from a university in England and applied and been accepted for a MSc in Quant Finance and University of Glasgow. Today I spoke with someone from Student Finance England and I have been told that if I am an EU citizen I cannot get a postgraduate loan for studying at University of Glasgow. Only if I am a home student I can benefit from such a loan.

    My questions:
    1. Is it true that I cannot get funding for studying at UofG or I have been misinformed?
    2. What can I do to become eligible? (get a permanent address, apply for citizenship etc.)
    3. What other funding opportunities are for EU students that I have not been aware? (I already got a scholarship)
    4. Would you recommend the Career Development Loans offered by the UK Gov?

    Thank you!
