Postgraduate programs include Masters and Doctorates (PhD) courses, also funded by Student Finance England for UK residents. You can undertake postgraduate study after you complete a Bachelor degree.
If you’re studying full time Master, your course can last for 1 or 2 years. If you’re studying part time you can study for 2 to 4 years.
A Doctorate can last 3 or 4 years if you choose to study full-time and 6 or 8 years part-time.
Depending on the number of years your chosen course has, the loan will be divided equally across each year of your course. Having a loan from a previous undergraduate course won’t affect your eligibility for a Postgraduate Loan.
Whether you qualify for a Postgraduate loan depends on your:
- Your age
- Nationality and residency status
- Previous studies
- Your course
- Your institution
