    I have been accepted at a University in UK but already have a Masters degree from a University in Asia.

    This probably means that I cannot apply for the Post Grad loan in UK.

    As I looked thru the regulations and eligibility, I found this "You can apply for a postgraduate loan if you're English-resident, under 60 and beginning a Masters in the UK for the first time."

    I am applying for a Masters in UK for the first time - Does that perhaps change something, that enables me to get this much needed financial help?

    Would be really grateful for any thoughts on this. Thank you.

    If you already hold a Masters degree you will not be eligible regardless of where you studied.

    The quote you're picking up on is to prevent people who have failed a Masters degree from applying for support again,

    Ahh. PQ, I get it now. Thank you for that.

    The fact that my entire dream of doing this course depends majorly on finding some financial help - is making me look at the legislation, from all angles. My case seems to be slightly different ...and I do not know if there is any way that an exception might be made. I was told on the phone that I might be able to appeal at a later point. But I am not sure if that will work out as well

    However - I thank you very much for your input.
