If you use the calculator on the Student Loan website, you need to choose the Undergrad option rather than Post-grad. For some reason PGCE is treated like an undergrad course for finance.

I did my PGCE this year. I got a loan for fees, a loan for maintenance and a small maintenace grant too. I've got a DH who is earning and two DCs.

Your uni may be able to advise further and there is also the excellent TES forum too.

Good luck! smile

Hi All, I am starting a PGCE in September part-time. I know I am not entitled to student loan (thanks tories!) but I am entitled to a tuition fee loan. Does anybody know about entitlements to grants? I am a single parent and need childcare paid for.

Thanks!
