Hello
I really need some help getting information about the tuition fee loan and I hope someone here will be able to answer or direct me to a place where I will find some information on the topic.
I'm a Polish student, currently finishing my BA in Warsaw and I'm thinking about beginning an MA course via distance learning in UK the next year and I am sure I'll need to take a loan to cover the course's tuition fees.
I've found out that people reading distance courses are eligible for the loan, but there is absolutely no information anywhere, of whether it is possible to live in a different country throughout the course and still be able to take it. I'm an EU national, so under normal circumstances (if I were to live in the UK) I would have been eligible.
Could it depend on the University, or a course?
Should I enquire about that in the particular Uni, or somewhere else?
Please help if you can
I'd be very grateful for any info on the topic.

UK Student Finance doesn't cover Masters courses for anyone (even UK students), so there's no central loan you can take out.

Individual universities may have scholarships for non-UK students, but those will be specific to the university and potentially even to the course. All unis wll now have this information on their website, so you need to do some detailed investigation.

Their aren't any loans for masters courses from student finance. There are some career development loans but these are only available to those resident in the UK.
