2nd Loan for 2nd PGCE

I enrolled on a PGCE in 2022-23. However, I did not complete it at no fault of mine and was awarded PGCERT without QTS. I would like to go back and do it again. I have two questions:

1.) Will I be able to get loan for £9250 to cover the PGCE?
2.) WIll I get another ITT bursary for the second PGCE?

Thank you

Hi there,

Would you be restarting the full PGCE? How long would it be in duration?

Thanks, Ross

Hi,

I think my only option is to restart the PGCE, which means a whole year. The other alternative is assessment only route which would take 3 months.

Thanks for confirming.

How many years did you study your previous PGCE course? Also, how long would the new course be?

Thanks again.

You would qualify for the support for retaking the 1 year course.

Thanks, Ross

For Student Finance you'd be eligible. We don't tend to deal with bursaries so you'd need to enquire elsewhere for that I'm afraid. We only deal with Maintenance Loan, Tuition Fees, Supplementary Grants and DSA.

Thank you. So, I will be eligible to get a loan for tuition fee to pay the University fees?

That's correct, and a Maintenance Loan.

Thanks, Ross
