Where in the uk do you live?
Does the course provider say whether the masters is eligible for a postgraduate loan or undergraduate funding?

The maximum loan you can get from SF for postgraduate masters study is approx £10680.

You only get this once, not per year and it has to cover both your tuition and maintenance. So if you’re planning to do a 2 year masters, you might find you fall wel short of financing.

I live in Manchester and the 2 year MA is in Social Work at Manchester uni.

I've already applied for a different masters which is a 1 year course and SF have accepted me for a 10k loan

But I'm interested in this 2 year social work MA and I'm wondering is SF will fund both years

and yeah it says on the website it is eligible for post grad funding

If you can get the PGL then the ~£10k will be spread across the two years.

For social work MAs though you should also be able to get a bursaries https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/social-work-students

As above.

SF will find both years but the maximum you’ll get over 2 years is £10,680. So that would be £5,340 each year. That might not even cover your tuition.

for 2018/19 Manchester has 34 bursaries available for 48 places. You need to speak to them about whether you have been successful in being shortlisted for a bursary.

They also offer a £1,000 fees discount for all UK fee payers.
