    Many distance learning masters courses don't have time limits, allowing people to work at their own pace depending on their commitments. How do these work for the new masters loan?

    Specifically, I'm interested in doing an MBA through the Edinburgh Business School at Herriott Watt University. I intend to work on this full time and complete it within a year, as many people do, but there isn't a time limit. Is this course eligible?

    Hi Mbax86

    Students can get funding for a part-time postgraduate Master's course, however it must not take longer than twice the usual course length to complete, 2-4 years.

    The total available funding is the same, however would only ever get paid over the initial 2 years of the course.

    Example
    The student is studying a part-time postgraduate Masters which will take 4 years. In years 1 and 2 the student is eligible for funding. After these initial 2 years, no further funding will be paid to the student.

    Thanks
