You may be able to apply for a loan of up to £11,836* as a contribution towards your postgraduate taught course and living costs. This is paid into your bank account in instalments during the academic year if you are studying on a one-year full-time course, such as a Master's degree.
The Master's loan is intended to be a contribution to the cost of an eligible postgraduate qualification. The borrower may use the loan according to their individual circumstances as a contribution towards the cost of the Master's course tuition fees and/or any other costs associated with study, including their living costs. Students are responsible for paying their tuition fees to the University.
Loans are administered through the Student Loans Company (SLC). The SLC will pay the individual directly in three instalments across the academic year during the period of study. The first payment is released to you once the university has confirmed your enrolment and attendance. The loan payments will stop if you change to a course which is not eligible in the loans scheme or withdraws from study.
