    Hi,

    I need some major advice. Im not looking to be told its completely impossible, rather advice about how I might achieve my goals.

    I have an integrated master in chemistry (MChem), however, I only achive a 2:2. Since then I have become a secondary science teacher. I am wanted to go back to academia. I am aware that with my grade, it is extremely unlikely I would be able to get accepted onto a PhD.

    To that extent I am consdiering applying for a master programme.

    Is it even possible for me to do a master when I already have an integrated masters? If I can, could I get funding for it? Is there anyone I could speak to get advice from?

    Regards

    John

    Hi John,

    Students who already hold a qualification which is equivalent to or higher in level than a Masters, this includes an integrated Masters (ELQ) will not be eligible for a Postgraduate Loan (PGL).

    If the (MChem) in chemistry is a level 7 course then this is an equal level qualification to a Postgraduate Loan and you would not be eligible.

    Thanks
