Hi, please clarify further. Are you saying your masters course is 4 years long or are you stating you have had 4 years of previous undergraduate study.

Your previous undergraduate study does not affect eligibility for a postgraduate loan.
Thanks, Isaac

Thanks for the reply! I am currently doing a 4 year course at the university of west England (foundation year included) and was hoping to do a masters at Bristol university. I had it in my mind that student finance will only give a loan for 4 years

No, it's a myth that people think there is only 4 years of funding.

Full time undergraduate students can receive funding for the length of their course plus one additional year
Part time undergraduate students can receive funding for up to 16 years.

A postgraduate masters course must be:


A full-time course lasting 1 or 2 years; or
A part-time course lasting 2 academic years which has a 1 year Full Time Equivalent (FTE)
A part-time course lasting 3 or 4 academic years which has a 2 year FTE; or
A part-time course lasting up to 3 years which has no FTE course.


Thanks, Isaac
