Does this mean it’s not eligible? There’s literally an asterisk next to the course e.g course title (msc)*

Is the council subject to validation by the university still? Does the course have a star next to it on the university website?

No it’s been running there for years. The only thing is that it’s slightly more than the loan but because I went there for my undergraduate I can get 20% off which makes it within the loan amount. It’s a conversion course if that makes any difference?

Universities revalidate all courses every 5 years.

Is this a masters course? The amount of loan for a postgraduate loan is not adjusted if your fees are higher/lower. The loan is paid to the student to spend as they like.

You need to ask your university why there’s an asterisk on the SFE system.

Yeah it’s an Msc. It’s 240 credits though not sure if that has anything to do with it. I’ll give my uni a call. Thanks for the advice.
