    There is the Postgraduate Loan, however, there's no maintenance loan attached to it, so the entire sum is supposed to cover your fees + living costs.

    I've checked the average cost of tuition fees in England is around £6000

    Would that be the cheapest? also if I get the sponsor the government would still give the full loan?

    Do you have any experience on getting a sponsor?

    Hi there!

    So it looks like you could get a Postgraduate loan on top of other sponsorship, but it is dependent on certain caveats. I found some advice on this from FindAMasters, who say this;

    "In some cases, yes. Receiving other postgraduate funding or finance from your university or a third party (such as a charity) won't normally affect your eligibility. However, if other public funding is available for the whole of your course, you may not be able to apply for a postgraduate loan. This is one of the reasons why integrated and undergraduate Masters are not eligible."

    There is also the possibility that applying for a Postgraduate loan may affect your eligibility for other funding. It is all very dependent on the eligibility criteria of the sponsorship you apply for, and the course you wish to study.

    I strongly recommend you follow this link and read a full explanation on FindAMasters under the heading 'How much can I borrow?'

    I hope this has cleared things up for you!
