I have a place to study a PGCE at Cambridge in September. I am completing a postgrad MA this year, and have done four years of undergraduate prior to this. I am under 25 but wondered if I can be assessed as an independent student for my maintenance loan, rather than my parents income. I have had a job throughout university to support myself and have not had financial help from my parents, but have had undergraduate and postgraduate loans. Will I be able to qualify?

Hi Abbie, if your PGCE course is 2 years or less, non salaried and it will be your first time achieving Qualified Teacher Status, then your previous study will not affect your eligibility.

If you are under 25 and want to apply for the higher rate of finance then you need to either:

1. Provide your sponsors financial details https://www.gov.uk/guidance/supporti...n-3-easy-steps

OR

2. Meet the independent student criteria ow.ly/q5mJ30oSfa5

The forms can be uploaded online.

Thanks, Isaac
