Masters Funding

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Okay, I always assumed for some bizarre reason that masters fees would be covered by student finance however someone told me recentliethis isn't the case. My current course on student finance says Chemical Engineering 5yrs MEng (sandwich)

    On the government student fiance website I found this "If you plan to take a postgraduate master’s course from 1 August 2016, you may be able to get a Postgraduate Loan of up to £10,000 to help with course fees and living costs."

    So for example if this was my scenario,
    September 2015 - 1st year or uni
    September 2016 - 2nd year of uni
    September 2017 - Placement
    September 2018 - 3rd year of uni
    September 2019 - Masters year

    Would I still her funding for masters?

    Or am I already on a masters course because my course title says MEng and I started before August 2016 so I'm not eligible?

    Thank you!
