Hi, I'm posting just check that I understand the process properly. I am a third year medical student who will be intercalating for a master's programme in 2021/22.

Year 1 2018/19- SFE tuition + maintenance loan (undergraduate)
Year 2 2019/20- SFE tuition + maintenance loan (undergraduate)
Year 3 2020/21- SFE tuition + maintenance loan (undergraduate)

Year 4 2021/22 (i.e. my MSc)- apply for SFE Postgraduate Master’s Loan

Year 5 2022/23 (back to medical school) - apply for NHS bursary + SFE (undergraduate) maintenance
Year 6 2023/24- apply for NHS bursary + SFE (undergraduate) maintenance

Have I got it right?

Thank you

Hi, yes that looks correct. You will only be entitled to the Reduced Rate of Maintenance Loan in the 5th and 6th years.

Our guidance states:

Students can receive the usual package of support available to undergraduates in their first 4 years of study (Maintenance, Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Support such as Means Testing ML, Special Support, Maintenance Grant and DSA if applicable) subject to previous study and ELQ rules.

Students who hold an ELQ(Equivalent Level Qualification) will be eligible for a Maintenance Loan only for the first 4 years of their course.

In the 5th and subsequent years of study they are entitled to an income assessed NHS Bursary and therefore, the reduced rate of maintenance loan only from SFE.

If a student has intercalated during their course (Attended a different course for a year to receive further qualifications) then that year contributes to the students 4 years of study.


Thanks, Isaac
