So I'm starting a Masters degree in September, and I've seen that you can now apply for a postgraduate loan for them. However, you have to have been living in the UK for the past three years, and, while I am a UK national, I've been working abroad for three.
I was wondering, if I caught up with my National Insurance payments, whether that could help my chances to get finance for my course as it would be very helpful?
Thanks for any help you can give!

Nope, catching up with national insurance payments won't make a difference. If you are a UK national who lives outside of England, you can't get this loan.
You shouldn't feel too disappointed because this loan is a bit of a con and I think a lot of people will regret taking one out once their repayments start. I suggest you do your master's abroad, it is much cheaper in Europe and it will probably be more fun.
