For 17/18 entry there is a Postgraduate Loan of up to £10,280 available from Student Finance Wales and Student Finance England, please see their websites for further information on how to apply-applications should open from June 2017.
The Student Finance & Welfare Advisory Service has produced a Money Matters booklet about what other finance is on offer for post-graduate students.
Here are a few points you should bear in mind:
- You may well find that your living expenses are higher and that you need more money than you managed on as an undergraduate.
- The course you are interested in may have no funded places or a limited number for which you must compete to be accepted on to the course.
- Prospective postgraduate students can claim Income Support/Housing Benefit over the Summer vacation, between the end of their undergraduate course and the start of the postgraduate course as they aren't considered to be a student during that time.
You may find the links on the right helpful in researching how you are going to fund your course, and further information on sourcing funding can also be viewed at Additional Postgraduate Funding Information.
Information on Postgraduate fees including the Alumni Discount of 20% can be viewed at Postgraduate Fee Information.
