Hello! I really need some advice regarding funding for a Masters, as at the moment I am really confused and cannot seem to find an answer to my question. So, here goes:

I am looking to do a Masters 2018-19, maybe part time over two years (while working) and cannot afford tuition fees without a Masters loan.

In 2010 I completed my undergraduate degree at a UK university with funding via the usual route. In 2012 I went to do a PGCE, and recieved a tuition fee loan from student finance, it was a disastor for many reasons and I didn't complete the PGCE, but the tuition fee loan is what it is.

So my question is, despite recieveing funding for my PGCE (tution fee loan from SF) can I get funding from student finance in the form of a postgraduate loan for a UK Masters?

I just don't want to get all exited about continuing my study and then find I cannot fund it.

Thanks in advance!

Stuart

A pgce doesn’t make you ineligible for a postgraduate Loan for a masters.

The funding comes from different pots.

Hi Stuart,

You can be confident that undertaking a PGCE will not affect your eligibility for the Postgraduate Loan, as long as you do not already hold a Masters qualification.

The applications as yet for 2018/19 are not as yet available.

We will update all social media channels including The Student Room when available, you can follow us on Twitter and Facebook,
