I have called student finance England about this query..they say I would theoretically be entitled to the doctoral loan...however I'd be gutted if I was a successful applicant to then not be awarded the funding. I just want to be certain things will be okay.

The post is a graduate teaching assistant (GTA) PhD. It is stipend amount but does not state it is through a research council. However , it mentions GTA bursery; would this effect entitlement?

If anyone has experience of postdoctoral funding please get in touch.

Cheers.

Hi Lynsey,

Thanks, so just to clarify if it is from the university (not research council), then I would be able to claim a postdoctoral loan?

Hi there,

Yes, that's right - so long as this isn't from a Research Council you'll be fine to apply for the Postgraduate Doctoral Loan.

Thanks, Graeme
