Hello,

I'm just wondering if I'd be able to apply for a MA student loan from Student Finance even though I am just finishing my undergrad which I've got through with a student loan.

In the eligibility part on the student finance website it says you are not eligible if you're "behind in repayments for any previous loans". Does this mean I'd need to pay off my undergrad loan before applying?

Yes you can apply for a postgraduate loan through Student Finance as long as you have a place at university for a master's course. You must have also completed an undergraduate degree by the time your master's degree starts.

You only start paying back undergraduate loans once you start earning passed the threshold for repayment. Since you are continuing your education it isn't relevant to you for now.
