    Hi,

    As the title reads, I am an Undergraduate and have not graduated, I have however been accepted on to a MSc course starting shortly, so I will be studying at a Postgraduate level, I contacted Student Finances England to discuss the issue, however, the representative swiftly twisted my words to have me agreeing that I was now a Postgraduate, however, this is not factual. He proceeded to inform me that as a Postgraduate, SFE would not be able to assist me.

    Is there any better advice that anyone can provide to this regard?

    Thanks,

    John

    Hi there.

    How many years is the Masters course? If this is an integrated Masters course, normally lasting around 4+ years then this is still an undergraduate course and will attract full funding from SFE.

    When does the Masters course itself begin?

    Thanks.

    Thanks Mark,

    I have heard somewhere that these will be restricted to people under 30, as I will be 31 in October, does this mean I will be excluded?

    There is an age limit but it is 60. You must be 59 or under to be eligible for these loans.
