Tuition fees or Full support?

Hello!

I am a EU national with a settlement status. I am a prospective student in a MSc in London. I already hold an offer.

I have been living in the UK/EEA for the 3 years prior to the course starting date.

I want to know if I am entitled for a full support student loan and how much will it be

If not, I want to know how much is the tuition fee only amount

Also, are postgraduate students entitled to apply for a maintenance loan for the living costs?

I will eagerly be waiting for your replies.

Thank you!
Marta.

Hi Marta,

Would you be applying for a Postgraduate or Undergraduate course?

With Postgraduate funding their is no Maintenance Loan/Tuition Fees. The funding is considered a contribution towards total costs, it's non-means tested and paid directly to you.

Thanks, Ross

Hi Ross!

Thank you for the fast response!

I will be applying for a postgraduate course.

So you mean there's only a full support option in any case, right? Therefore, I can apply for the £12.167 in order to pay for my university fees and living costs also.

Please correct me if I am mistaken.

Thanks again!
Marta.

Hi Marta,

You are essentially correct. We'd give money to you at the start of each term. If you're on a 1 year Masters course then you'd get the full amount in 1 year, if it's a 2 year course then it'd be paid over 6 instalments. It would be up to yourself whether you use it for the fees or keep it for yourself.

Thanks, Ross

Glad you ask because I realized I do have one more question.

After my MSc I plan to do a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology (not clinical psychology which I know is funded by the NHS).

Would I be entitled to apply for a doctorate loan after receiving the postgraduate one? How much can I ask for?

Kind regards!
Marta.

Hi Marta. Yes, as long as you are going up a level of qualification you would be eligible for funding. Going from the MsC to the higher PhD level on this course you would be eligible for funding. Thanks, David
