    Hi,

    I have a BSc Hons degree which was awarded in July 2000 and am now hoping to return to university next September and retrain by completing a PGCE course. Would I be eligible for a loan to help cover tuition fees or not? I didn't have to pay tuition fees for my first degree as it was before they were brought in so I'm unsure whether that might mean I could apply for one now perhaps? If not, do you know of anywhere else I can try or should I attempt to arrange a private loan?

    Thanks very much for your help.

    Hi tweety396,

    You would be eligible to apply for full funding for your PGCE course as it is an exception course and we don't take into account your previous study or that you already have a degree.

    This means you can apply for full funding - Tuition Fee Loan (TFL) of up to £9250, means-tested Maintenance Loan (ML) and Supplementary Grants (if applicable) such as Parents' Learning Allowances, Childcare Grant, Adult Dependants' Grant, and Disabled Students' Allowances.

    Thanks

    Thank you Laura, that is a relief I must admit as we have two children to support on one salary while I would be studying so finding the extra to pay the tuition fees would be virtually impossible. I’m sure it’s fairly straightforward to apply though this is the first time I’ve been on this website, would you mind directing me to where to find the application section please?Thanks again for your help with this.
