Postgrad in Scotland. I am from England. Have always received funding from SFE.

    • Thread Starter


    I am just wondering if anybody can shed some light on whether I am eligible for a Postgraduate Loan. Student Finance England have supported my study since 2010. I have lived in Scotland since then. But have always been supported by SFE. Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) were unable to support me for three years and so was advised by SAAS and SFE to continue being funded by SFE. I am now going into a Masters degree at the University of Glasgow and wondered whether SFE would fund this? If not, I am really stuck as SAAS will not fund this course. My family live in England and when I am finished studying I will more than likely return to England. Everything I read provides different information. I am a UK resident and lived my life in England up until 2010. Have always been funded by SFE and no way SAAS will fund me so I am stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    Has anybody got any other information? Or been in this situation?

    Any advice would be brilliant.


    You need to phone SFE and ask.
