Hi. I graduated in 2002 and am still repaying my undergraduate Student Loan with the SLC. I want to apply for the new Postgraduate Student Loan for an MA course I've been accepted on in Sept 2016 - will I be able to receive the Postgrad Loan even though my previous Student Loan is 13 years old and still not paid off...? I pay it monthly out of my salary.

Anyone under the age of 60 can get a loan if they're on a masters course and meet the residency requirements.

http://www.findamasters.com/funding/...ns-scheme.aspx has more details.

Your repayments once you graduate and go back to work will be higher - the PG loan repayments apply on top of any UG loan repayments.

Hi LDJS1976

You will be able to apply for the postgraduate loan if you are still repaying your undergraduate one back.
Please see this link for some more information: http://bit.ly/1WZNkFr
