    Hi everyone

    Sorry to ask but I can't find other threads on this...

    I have 3 unconditional MA offers... 1 I know I don't want, so will decline. So now there are 2 - I like them both, with a slight preference for one. But there's a very slim chance it won't be applicable for the new postgrad loans (unlikely but won't know 100% til May). I can't do it without one of those loans.

    So can I in good conscience/is it technically allowed to accept 2 offers, and drop one once I know the situation re: funding?

    Thanks in advance for your advice - it's much appreciated :-)

    As Jantculum says, that's OK. It's actually quite normal for people to accept a Masters offer and then have to decline it later because they can't raise the finance. Unis will be fine with it - just let them know as soon as you can, in case there's a squeeze on places and it can be offered to another applicant.

    Just remember that the proposed PG loans are only for £10k - so wont cover the entire cost of a Masters degree.

    They do depending on the course :-) None of mine are more than £7,000 total.

    Thanks, Klix and Janta! That's so helpful.

    It may cover fees - but there is no extra as a maintenance award.

    returnmigrant Depends on your circumstance I guess! The guidelines say you can apply for any amount up to £10,000. I work full-time so don't necessarily need maintenance money for living - but I will likely apply for a little more so I can cover books, trips etc. :-)

    So presumably this is only p/time study?

    Yes, part-time :-) The most expensive degree in my offer list is £3,500 a year so £7k total.
