    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.
