    Hey,
    I have recently completed my BA History degree at Royal Holloway and have been accepted to study a Masters degree in Holocaust and Genocide studies at the University of Amsterdam starting in September this year. However, since the course is not in the UK I have had particular difficultly finding funding. Does anyone know where to start? I've looked everywhere and written to over 20 organisations with no luck. A loan needed would be no greater than around 7/8k which includes all expenses of living, housing and tuition.
    Help would be much appreciated,
    Thank you

    Don't believe you can get funding from the UK to study outside the UK like that.

    When studying abroad you can't assume you will get funding. In fact until this year there wasn't automatic funding for postgraduate students studying in the UK either. That said the Netherlands does offer a tuition fee loan and, if you get a job and work 56 hours a mont or more, then you will be eligible for a maintainance loan.
