Postgraduate loans

1. Overview

A Postgraduate Loan can help with course fees and living costs while you study a postgraduate master’s course.

Funding for postgraduate loans is different if you normally live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. Moving somewhere to study doesn’t count as normally living there.

You have to repay your Postgraduate Loan at the same time as any other student loans you have. You’ll be charged interest from the day you get the first payment.

You can also get extra support if you have a disability.

If you apply for a Postgraduate Loan, you won’t be eligible for an Adult Dependants’ Grant, a Childcare Grant or Parents’ Learning Allowance.
