Hi, I'm really hoping to do a postgraduate degree in 2021, my main concern is the loans. I'm Welsh and at the moment the loans are very generous and more than enough to do the course/get accommodation (it's currently £17,000) but I'm really anxious that they might not be viable next year with government finances being spent elsewhere.

Anyone have any idea on this?

Any loan provided by the government has the possibility of being withdrawn for new students at any time (COVID notwithstanding), so it's very hard to say. Worst case scenario is that it is indeed withdrawn, so your main option would be to work and save up before going to uni again.

I'm currently doing a postgraduate degree and have heard nothing on fees being potentially withdrawn
