We can tell you the price of a postgraduate degree - but that's not the same as its value. You really can't put a price on turning your dream into reality.
Student loans are available for postgraduate master's degrees in all subjects, including taught and research programmes for courses beginning on or after 1 August 2016. These loans are available for full-time, part-time and distance learning courses.
You can borrow up to £10,000, paid in three instalments a year. Loans for part-time courses are capped at £5,000 a year.
You pay back 6% of your income over £21,000 a year, starting from three years after graduation. Interest is charged at RPI +3%.

You may be funded by your employer to cover all or part of course fees. You must provide a letter confirming this or you will be invoiced for your fees.
You pay back your postgraduate loan when you are earning over £21,000 a year. Repayments are 6‰ of your income above £21,000, so the amount repaid each month depends on how much you earn. Loan repayments are due in the April after completing your course.
