Postgraduate loans

From the 2016/17 academic year onwards you may be able to apply for a postgraduate loan from the UK Government. These loans are similar to those used by undergraduate students and are repaid under the same terms. This means that you won't start repaying your loan until you begin to earn a professional wage.
