I am currently in my 2nd year of a 4 year course with a foundation degree (as a screwed up my A levels when I left college). I've heard mixed things about this but can I still get a loan from student finance for a Masters degree even though Ive been funded for a 4 year course already? (I really hope I can)If anyone has any answers it would be much appreciated! Thanks

Hi annak332,

Can you confirm if the Masters Degree would be a Postgraduate Course Level 7 or would it be an undergraduate course with integrated Masters?



Thanks

It would just be a separate masters after I complete my 4 year BA.

I have mainly heard that you get an extra year for the length of your course so for a 4 year course I would get an extra 1 year? Is this correct?

Hi @annak332

Yes, you would be able to get a postgraduate loan for a Masters!

What are looking at studying?

Hi annak332,

Previous study at undergraduate level is not considered when your are applying for a Postgraduate Loan. As long as you do not hold a level 7 qualification (ELQ) and the masters course is eligible for funding you can apply for a Postgraduate Loan (PGL). PGL is a one time only product and you can only apply once.

Thanks

Louise

Hi there, The Postgraduate Loan is assessed for separately than Undergraduate funding. You can find out more about the eligibility for this here: https://www.gov.uk/masters-loan
