    Hi

    I applied for and was granted a postgraduate loan in July, while I was in the middle of an MA, so I was eligible for the loan because I had not yet completed it. However, I cannot yet enrol at my course and by the time I am able to enrol and start receiving payments I will have finished my prior MA. Will I have to cancel my loan even though I have already been approved? I'm worried about possibly committing fraud or something like that. I hope I have explained myself properly, English is not my first language.

    Thank you!

    Hi m____g;74053158,

    As you are studying an MA in Spain, if you receive a qualification, we will not fund you for another MA course.

    yes I understand, but I have not received a qualification yet and probably will not receive it before I enrol on the new course for which I have requested (and have been granted) funding. What should I do?

    Hi m____g,

    You will need to wait to see if you gain a qualification or not.

    Hi, I have received an answer from my university and they told me I will most likely not be able to receive the loan. I have not received any payments (I have not provided a UK bank account); how can I cancel the loan? Thank you for your help.
