    Hi all,

    So i'm looking to do a masters in September 2017 and i can't work out if i'm able/eligible to apply for student finance or not? some websites are saying you can't if you've already had a loan before (i did for my BSc in sports therapy) can anyone advise me on this?

    Thanks

    The ruling is actually that if you already have an MSc, or equivalent, then you aren't allowed to receive student finance. It's not about whether you've got a BSc or not - basically every British student applying for post grad finance has one after all.

    You can't get a loan for another UG degree (with a few exceptions), you can get a PG loan (with a few exceptions).

    You hold an undergraduate degree... you don't already hold a masters or higher. You can apply for the master loan of 10k. I applied and have been accepted for doing my masters Sept 2016.
