    I am currently on a 4 year integrated masters MSci course and have got finance for those 4 years. I am in my third year. However, I am looking at graduating at the end of this year with a BSc and doing a separate course for my fourth year - a masters. Is it possible to use the fourth year of my student finance to fund this fourth year or not?

    In context, I am currently doing a theoretical physics MSci but would like to finish this year with a BSc and do the Cambridge Part III maths course (which does form part of an integrated masters for current Cambridge students).

    Thanks!

    This would depend on whether you'd be recorded as an undergraduate student in Yr 4 of a 4 year course or as a postgraduate student in Yr 1 of a 1 year course.

    My hunch is that you'd be counted as the latter in which case you'd be eligible for the new postgraduate loan of £10k to cover tuition and living costs (if tuition costs close to or more than £10k then you'd have to source the funds from elsewhere)
