    Hi All,
    I've taken out a PG Loan for a MSc being studied over 3 years starting now 2017/2018 academic year but have just been accepted onto a PGCE for next year 2018/2019 and will need to apply for finance (tuition and maintenance loans) for that.

    I plan on going back to the MSc once I finish the PGCE and the MSc Uni are OK with that.

    Can I suspend the PG Loan at the end of this academic year and get funding for the PGCE in 2018/2019? Or would I have to withdraw from the PG Loan in order to be able to get funding for the PGCE?

    I've also assumed that I can get funding for a PGCE after having had a PG Loan?

    Thank you!!

    Hi lottie2017,

    If you have already receive a payment for your Postgraduate Loan you would not be able to suspend the Masters course and go back to this at a later date. The Postgraduate Loan funding is only funded once.You could certainly apply for the PGCE course once your masters course was completed.

    Thanks
