Postgraduate Funding Guide

Our Advice and Counselling Service has produced a guide about how to fund your postgraduate studies that provides information and advice to Home and EU students.

Postgraduate Loan (Home/EU students only)

The government’s Postgraduate Loan offers up to £10,280 per programme for 2017 entrants on to masters degrees. The Loan is available for any taught masters programme as well as Master of Research (MRes), including part-time study. You must be aged under 60 on 1 August of the year in which you start your programme, and other eligibility criteria will also apply. If you already hold a masters degree or higher level qualification, you won’t normally be eligible for this Loan.

Get more information about how to apply, eligibility criteria, payment information, and loan repayments, including salary scales and interest rates from QMUL’s Postgraduate Funding advice guide or read about the Loan on gov.uk/postgraduate-loan.
