    Do you mean the new Masters loans: http://www.practitioners.slc.co.uk/m..._fs_1617_d.pdf

    If so then yes you can apply for funding for both - but remember that your Masters loan repayments will be IN ADDITION to your undergraduate and PGCE loan repayments - so instead of repaying 9% of your income over £21k (which would be the rate for just a BA/BSc and PGCE loans) you'd be paying 15% of your income above £21k

    Depending on the topic of your Masters it might be better to wait and study part time while working (or see if your employer will offer to part fund or offer day release for studying).
