A government-backed Postgraduate Loans scheme is available for masters degrees, with loans of up to £10,000 being available for eligible students. For part-time courses, the £10,000 will be split over the number of years that the course lasts, meaning that for a two-year course, you would get up to £5,000 in each year.  To check eligibility and read more about the loans visit the QMUL postgraduate finance pages.
