Hello,

I am aware of this condition --

"If you’ve studied beforeIf you already have a master’s degree, or a qualification that’s an equivalent or higher, you won’t be eligible."

I self-funded an MSc course from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2005 when I was an Indian citizen. I became a UK citizen this March 2016 (as I had continuously lived in England for over 7 years) and I am about to start an MBA from Manchester University this September 2016. I would like to know if the change in my citizenship allows me to utilise PGL?

Regards,

Sahib Patel

I'm afraid not

The rules about already having a masters aren't about whether you've previously had student support or not and are just about whether you already hold a master equivalent or higher qualification

Hello, thanks for your reply -- Agree with your point on student support, however, I am more interested in finding out if my change in citizenship has any impact here.

If you have a masters qualification then you aren't eligible for a PGL.
