Post-Graduate Student Finance?
I have completed four years of undergraduate which were funded by student finance (both tuition fees and living costs). I'm from a low income family so received a high maintenance loan and bursary.
I am now wanting to continue my education and I am at a bit of a cross-roads with what I want to do and the financial side of things will really influence me.
- If I do a master's degree, will this be funded?
- If after a master's degree I wanted to do graduate-entry medicine, would this be funded even though I have already done a post-graduate degree?

Funding would be available for a designated stand alone Masters course, for more specific information on the amount of funding please call, 0300 100 0031
(Open Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 6.00pm).
Graduate entry medicine is an exception course so does not take into account your previous under graduate and post graduate study. The specific funding available would depend on which academic year you started your course.
