Postgraduate students are able to apply for a government loan of up to £10,609 towards course fees or living costs, for courses starting in 2018/19.
The loan will be paid directly to you in three annual instalments.
If you have an existing Undergraduate loan, you can still apply for a Postgraduate loan but both will need to be re-paid. They are treated as separate loans so depending on your earnings, you may have to repay both at the same time.
You will start to repay your loan when earning over £21,000, paying back 6% on earnings over £21,000. You will not start to repay your loan until April 2020 at the earliest, but you can make voluntary early repayments and the loan will be written off after 30 years. The loan will be charged at an interest rate of RPI plus 3%. Interest will start to accrue as soon as the loan is taken out.
Application and eligibility information is available at Student Finance England.
Further information on Postgraduate Loans is available at gov.uk.
