Hi,

I read that the Student Finance NI is offering £5,500 for postgraduate loans in 2017 as opposed to the £10,000 that is expected to be offered by Student Finance England. I found the information from this site https://www.findamasters.com/funding...n-ireland.aspx
and was uploaded in the last week. However their is nothing about it yet on the Student Finance Ni website. Just wondering does anyone know how accurate this is as I thought Student Finance Ni was going to offer a £10,000 postgraduate loan too.

They're right

Tucked away on page 10 of this: https://www.delni.gov.uk/sites/defau...0%5Bweb%5D.pdf

To be paid directly to universities to cover fees - no living costs support.

That document was published in March here: https://www.delni.gov.uk/consultatio...tudent-finance

That's a joke tbh. They say it is that cost to reflect what is charged in local unis, but what about NI students who go to England, Scotland etc? I'm glad I got out of N.Ireland, but now that has annoyed me (even though personally I am 2 years off from graduating with an undergrad).
