Types of finance
Qualification level of your course
This helps determine what types of funding you can get. Read both options and decide which one applies to you.
You're going to be studying for:
- a degree, for example: a BA, BSc, teacher training
- a foundation degree
- an HNC or HND
- a certificate or diploma in higher education
- an Integrated Master's
- Postgraduate Initial Teacher Training eg Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)
- a Scottish postgraduate or Scottish Master's
- a Master of Architecture
You're going to be studying for a Master's qualification.
If you're starting a full-time or part-time course (taught or research-based) that starts from 1 August 2017 you can apply for a Postgraduate Loan.
Postgraduate Loans are not available for integrated Master's courses. Apply for these using the undergraduate funding option instead.Next
