    The LPC is not a Masters course (MA or LLM) and therefore wont be eligible for the loan in most cases.

    BPP seem to offer an MA which includes an LPC (and Sheffield and BPP both offer a top up from LPC to MA) so it may be worth investigating that or contacting other universities offering an LPC to see if they have any options that include the additional work to be classed as a Masters course and so attract the loan.

    The courses I have applied for are combined with an llm .. If that's the case would that count as a masters course ?

    An LLM is a masters course. I'd suggest double checking with the universities that the courses are definitely considered masters courses under the PG loan scheme rules.

    Hi Laurenb2016

    the courses have not been confirmed yet. So far we have been informed:
    will be available for postgraduate Master's courses only starting on or after 1 August 2016 (16/17 AY).
    The course must also be either:
    • a full-time course lasting 1 or 2 years; or
    • a part-time course lasting 2 to 4 years, which must be studied at a minimum of 50% intensity (see section below for more information)
    Thanks
