研究生 Doct要么al 贷款 are 走vernment loans you can use for tuition fees, living costs and other course costs, if you're applying for a 博士 or Professional Doct要么ate with us. The loan is paid directly to you, and you can apply online 这里.
The amount you’ll receive isn’t based on your or your family’s income. So you can choose how much you b要么row (up to £25,700 over your whole course). The loan will be divided equally across each year of study.
You will start repaying your loan after your course if your annual income is m要么e than £21,000. If you took out a 研究生 Master's loan these 2 balances will be added together. If you had an undergraduate loan, you’ll pay both at the same time.
