Hello

So as I understand the rules you are not eligible for an MA loan if you already hold a Masters'. However I wanted to make sure there isn't some exception I'm entitled to. Here are the specifics of my situation

1) I have an MA, however it was entirely funded by the University as part of a scholarship from the University. I received no postgraduate loan or funding from Student Finance or any other body.

In your reply to another post on this subforum, you said

> We have been advised the postgraduate loan with be for Masters courses only. As long as you do not hold this qualification already and have not had a loan for postgraduate funding, you will be able to apply.

I am wondering therefore if, due to my lack of postgraduate funding despite holding a degree, I am eligible.

Also

2) I have an undergrad loan, however it covered only the fees. I have received no loan for living costs. Therefore I have the smallest possible loan taken from Student Finance so far.

I don't think this counts for much but I thought I'd check as I haven't taken nearly so much from Student Finance as my peers, and perhaps this goes some way to making my request for a postgraduate loan more palatable.

Thanks

Hi Alasdair93

If you already hold a qualification which is equivalent to or higher in level than a Masters, you will not be eligible for a postgraduate loan.

Thanks
