    Hey, So I currently rent an apartment and turns out I have to study an extra year post grad. Without any maintenance loans/grants... I wont be able to afford the rent. I know Student Finance can loan me 10800 but my course alone is 12000. Im not sure what help is out there and am quite disheartened to see this type of issue for postgrads.

    To become fully qualified I have to do an extra year course at post-grad. Every employer requires it now.

    Nightmare - what course is it? Are there cheaper options for masters?

    Have you looked for cheaper courses elsewhere or places which offer some kind of bursary/scholarship?

    Otherwise I guess you might have to move home and/or work in a job which doesn't require a master's while you save up to do one. I think that's pretty common.
