PGCE tuition fee loan...HELP!!!!

  1. Hi,
    I'm an Irish student and I hope to apply for the PGCE in London but now with the new fees introduced I don't know will I be able to afford it. I was wondering could any one answer afew of my qs...I would really appreciate it.

    1) Who is eligible for the tuition fee loans?
    2) Will you be able to get a loan to cover the 9,000 pounds?
    3) Can you be refused the loan?
    4) St. Marys or Reading for Primary PGCE?????
  2. Yes, as an EU citizen you are eligible for tuition fee loan (but no other support like grant and maintenance loan).
    Yes, you can receive in loan up to the maximum charged.
    No, if you meet the criteria like EU citizenship and residence, confirmed place for PGCE etc.You apply direct to EU Team at Student Support.
    Both are well-regarded providers but I have no personal experience. Hope someone else will chip in.
