A new system of postgraduate loans for Masters degrees in the UK will be introduced from 1 August 2016.

The government will provide up to £10,000 a year for taught and research Masters courses in all subject areas.

Postgraduate loans are not available for courses below Masters level including shorter diplomas and certificates such as the LPC. However, many LLM (Master of Laws) programmes now include an LPC qualification and therefore may qualify.
