    I am a english undergraduate in my final year of a 4 degree in scotland. I'm hoping to apply to QMU Edinburgh for a postgraduate MSc pre-registration course that lasts 2 years and 2 months, starting September 2017.

    I have been following the consultations between the government and council of deans for some time about this matter. I am really pleased they have decided to extend the tuition loans and bursaries for 2017 until they come up with a long term plan.

    However I have some pretty important questions:

    1. am i definitely still considered an english student i.e. can i still apply to s.e given i have studied in Scotland for 4 years?
    2. will the tuition loan cover the full tuition? (~£8550 a year + 2 months)
    3. will the maintenance loan take into account my parents income?
    4. will the maintenance ever be enough to live off or will i have to look into bank loans?

    I'd love to know the answers to these ASAP as I'm going to be applying this weekend, and if i end up not having any finance plans i will get rejected/have to pull out at a later date! Thank you

    Hi,

    If you have lived in Scotland for the last 3 years you will not be eligible to apply for the Post Graduate Loan from SFE.

    Thanks

    Even though I'm a student? And my registered out of term time address and student finance address is in England?

    Hi,

    If your home address has remained in England you may be eligible to receive the post graduate loan, I would advise you to make an application and we can review this.

    Thanks
