I start my PGCE in September, and am now waiting on my student loan, as I applied late. I was led to believe that the student loan was fairly automatic, but it now looks like I'm ineligible. The government Teacher training funding page mentions that postgraduates can get funding for the ITT course, as does the Get into Teaching page. But later on, Page 7. Eligibility, mentions that "You’ll usually get student finance only if you’re doing your first higher education qualification", which would exclude all postgraduates! Another government page on loans states that you won't get a loan (a) if you have a Master, which I do (b) your course has to be a "full" course worth at least 120 points, whereas mine is 60 points. Will I not get a loan?
