    Can I get a Post Graduate Loan to do my Master's research dissertation?

    I think a requirement is that you don't already have a higher qualification but you may want to check.

    Do you feel that when you apply for a postgraduate degree there is an emphasis played on where you did your undergraduate from or is it mainly about how well you did on your degree? For example, I have an offer from East Anglia for English Literature but it's 7 hours away from home and the course is a year longer so I'm very reluctant to go there. I also have an offer from a Uni that is closer an the course is only 3 years but it's not a prestigious university. I want to go a postgraduate degree after my undergraduate, would me picking East Anglia make a difference to the application process or shall I just focus on getting a first and getting experience rather than the uni I go to?
