    Hi, I'm looking to change career completely and apply for an MSc Computer Science conversion course. To do this I wold obviously require postgraduate funding. However on the Student Loans website it states that to be eligible for the loan you must not posses a Masters degree. The problem is that I hold a MPharm (masters in pharmacy) as that how the course is set i.e. 4 years to obtain the masters. You can not do 3 years in pharnacy and become pharmacist. So would I be eligible for a postgraduate loan?

    Apologies for the vague explanation but it it pretty difficult to explain the situation!

    According to this: http://www.practitioners.slc.co.uk/m...ce-2016-17.pdf page 16

    If you hold an MPharm then you aren't eligible for a PGL
