    Hi Anlu,

    If you are undertaking a standalone Masters, between one and two years full-time or up to four years part-time and don't already hold a Masters qualification you can apply for a Postgraduate Loan.

    The loan support will be up to a maximum of £10,609 for new postgraduate students starting their postgraduate Master's course in 2018/19 Academic Year.

    We do not look at your household income, you decide how much you wish to borrow up to the maximum.

    Unfortunately there is no other support with the Postgraduate loan other than Disability Students Allowance.

    Thanks Rona
