PG loans (Masters)

In 2015, the Government announced that it intended to launch a new loan for Postgraduate students undertaking a Masters course. The loan was launched in 2016 and was made available for students starting courses from 2016/17. 
The introduction of the loan is intended to increase the number of individuals with postgraduate Masters qualifications, which will help to ensure that the UK is able to meet increasing demands for highly skilled workers.
