Postgraduate Masters Loan 2024

Hi there,

I've been living in the UK continuously since December 2020 with pre-settled status. I recently received an offer from a UK university for a Masters program, which is eligible for a student loan along with my age. However, I noticed on the website that pre-settled students "may be eligible" for the loan, which is a bit confusing. Could you clarify if I'm eligible, especially compared to UK residents?

Additionally, I'm curious if Student Finance checks credit scores during the decision-making process. My credit score isn't great at the moment, so I'm wondering if that might affect my application.

Thanks for your help.

Hi there,

Where did you live prior to living in the UK? Are you due to get settled status? When are you planning to start the Masters course?

Thanks, Ross
Hi thanks for reply,

I am an EU citizen but studied in Turkey before moving to the UK (and have already lived here for more than 3 years). I can only apply for settled status in December 2025.

I am planning to start a postgraduate program in September 2024, with home fee status.

Thanks for confirming.

Do you already hold a Masters qualification? How long would your UK course be in duration?
