The postgraduate courses are funded with a fixed amount, which varies according to the chosen program. You can take the loan either to pay for tuition fees or for maintenance during studies. In practice, the maximum loan amount should be sufficient to cover tuition fees.
Post-graduate funds are fully refundable after finishing the course and earning over a certain level.
This type of loan does not depend on the applicant’s income or family income. The loan is paid in three instalments throughout the academic year into student bank account.
If you have a disability, including a mental-health condition or specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia or dyspraxia, you might be able to get Disabled Students’ Allowances. These don’t have to be paid back.
