Postgraduate Loans

From academic year 2016/17, the Department for Education will for the first time, provide a loan of up to £10,000 per student for postgraduate Masters study.

Postgraduate Loan (PGL) for Master’s study will be:

  • a contribution towards the costs of study, i.e. it will be at the student’s discretion to use the loan towards fees, maintenance costs or other costs
  • non-means tested
  • paid directly to the student.

Please access our Postgraduate Loans policy summary for an overview of the main features of the new loans.
