    Hello,

    I was wondering if I have any chances of getting my loan extended if I move up from Bachelors to Masters, since I've scored enough to move up to a Masters programme? I've started my studies in 2011.

    Hi C00vainas,

    The only student finance support we can provide for Masters level courses is Disabled Student Allowance unfortunately.

    Thanks,

    So if I already have a loan for my Bachelors degree, I cannot increase the loan for the additional year that a Masters degree would add?

    Hi Mark,

    Would C00vainas also need to find out whether the masters level is part of an integrated undergraduate program.

    I know there are some Universities that offer certain masters level "top ups" as an integration i.e MDes, MEng, MArch. In which case I believe student finance would be able to assist?

    I am studying Chemical Engineering at Loughborough University. I have friends who are doing integrated Masters, so I would assume I would get into the integrated Masters programme as well. How does that change the situation?

    Also, does it change things if I am not a UK student, but rather EU student?

    Hi UoD,

    Prior to the funding changes in the 2012 academic year we could provide finance to a student transferring from a BA or BSc onto the integrated Masters at any point throughout their degree.

    Unfortunately this is no longer the case as we are only able to provide student finance for an integrated Masters course if this is what was being studied from year one.

    Thanks!

    Hi again C00vainas,

    The funding rules regarding integrated Masters courses are the same for UK and EU students.

    Thanks,
    Mark-Lee
