Postgraduate Student Loans in the UK
Postgraduate student loans, also known simply as 'postgraduate loans' or 'Masters loans', provide financial support to students who wish to study beyond undergraduate level.
While Student Finance England was the first body to offer funding in 2016, Student Finance Northern Ireland, Student Finance Wales and the SAAS (Student Awards Agency Scotland) are all set to follow suit and introduce postgraduate loans for the 2017–18 academic year.
Each country's financial offering is different, however all funding bodies offer tuition fee loans. In some cases the loan may not be enough to cover the cost of your entire tuition. In these instances, you will need to pay the remaining amount using either your own money, or by seeking alternative funding.
The main determining factor in deciding which funding body to apply to is where you are primarily resident. so if you normally live in England, you should read our guide to postgraduate loans in England, and so on.
