  • Postgraduate

    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.
