    I think so but check with SFE.

    I was just concerned that your previous course would make you ineligible, but it just says master already or an equivalent and I would say your diploma is not equivalent, but check.


    You won’t be able to get a Postgraduate Master’s Loan if:

    • you’re already getting payments from student finance for another course that you’re studying
    • you received a Postgraduate Master’s Loan before - unless you left your course due to illness, bereavement or another serious personal reason
    • you already have a master’s degree, or a qualification that’s equivalent or higher
    • you’re behind in repayments for any previous loans from the Student Loans Company
