Probably. But also stupidly high interest rates. Have you looked for funding elsewhere? ESRC etc. (dependent on course and masters/PhD)

I have looked but I don't know where exactly to find other findings. I will check on what you have mentioned here ESRC,and see what help they can offer. Please let me know of any other you know,it will really help.

Hi akamades1!

What course are you looking at doing? And are you looking to take a PhD or a Masters?

You can get different types of funding for different courses (for example, the AHRC funds Humanities subjects, and you can also get some fully-funded PhDs via their Collaborative Doctoral Partnership scheme) so if you let me know, I can point you in the direction of some websites that might help you search for funding or funded courses in your subject area.

And as Noodlzzz said, the funding that is out there will depend on what level you are intending to study at. There's generally more funding available for a PhD that a Masters but, depending on the subject area, that isn't always the case!

You might also want to see if the university you want to apply to has funding or bursaries available. For example, at Keele we offer a bursary for postgraduate students who get a first-class honours degree at undergraduate level, plus we have bursaries for students from economically deprived areas as well.

Hi Amy

thanks for the information. I have accepted my offer to study PGCE Education (primary),which would be due to start from September 2020 if all other things being equal. At the moment I have made enquiries with the school student,I do not qualify for any of the bursary or grants.Tx.

That's a shame but it's always worth checking!

You may have already come across this website but there's info on the Get Into Teaching site about funding for teacher training at https://getintoteaching.education.go...acher-training.

Most of the scholarships and bursaries appear to be for science subjects at secondary level but it looks as if there may be additional funding for maths specialisation at primary level.

Anyway, hope that helps and best of luck with your course!

Amy

A PGCE might be a different kettle of fish to MA/MSc funding, so I'll move your thread to the Teacher Training forum for more guidance.

I took out a student finance loan. The difficulty with PGCE primary courses is that there are very few bursaries (only if you are a primary maths specialist). Some banks do a career development loan which might be less interest than student finance.

PGCE Primary Education
Hi there, I believe for PGCE you can take out a maintenance loan (which is assessed the same as undergraduate funding) based on your parents income below 25 or your own income over 25. My understanding is that this is independent of any funding you may have previously received - i.e: the four year funding rule doesn't apply.

I'm not sure if believing you're not eligible is why you're seeking another loans company, but if so then double check because I think you probably are

Hi akamades1,
I would get in touch with Student finance- the funding for teacher training is separate from your other university studies. Before contacting any other loan companies, there would be my first port of call. You might also find helpful to contact the course provider who you will train with. They will be happy to give you advice too.
