Postgraduate Loan Scheme

The UK Government offers postgraduate loans to Master’s-level students, and to PhD students from August 2018 onwards.

Postgraduate Master's Loan

If you're starting a master's degree, you could get a Postgraduate Master's Loan of up to £10,609 to help with course fees and living costs.

Postgraduate Doctoral Loan

If you're starting a doctoral degree on or after 1 August 2018, you could get a Postgraduate Doctoral Loan of up to £25,000 to help with course fees and living costs.

It isn't based on your income or your family's and it's paid directly to you. You'll be able to apply from summer 2018.
