Hi

Could you please clarify for me if a student who previously paid for their own Post Graduate qualification, could access the Post Graduate Masters Loan? I appreciate that SFE state they do not fund people who already hold the qualification at that level but in the Scottish system if you paid your initial course yourself and had not accessed the government system you could then access the funding.

I did ask in another thread but I made a mistake as I wanted to put my query direct to SFE.

Much appreciated

Louise

SFE don't care whether your previous qualification was funded or not - they're only interested in the level of that qualification. If you don't hold a Masters degree (even if you have a PGDip/PGCert/PGCE or other postgrad qualification) then you'll be eligible for funding, if you do then you wont.

Hi Louise,

What postgraduate degree do you already hold?
