NTC Approved for PhD Loans
NTC has received the encouraging news that we’ve been approved for Postgraduate Doctoral Loans.
From September 2019, students will be able to apply for support to help with course fees and living costs, and so this helps to remove a big barrier to PhD study for many potential students. ‘This will really make a difference to a number of students who haven’t been able to pursue research study because they just don’t have the resources,’ commented NTC Dean, Dr Peter Rae. ‘It’s a great step forward – and I think we’re the first of the Theological Colleges to be approved for this.’

Students are eligible if they are a UK or EU national, are under 60 when they start the course, and are living in England during their studies. Other eligibility information is available here. MA students and undergraduate students were already eligible for loans, so this means that NTC students now have full access to student loan funding. The approval comes following NTC’s registration last year with the Office for Students. Student can access up to £25,700, divided equally across each year of the course. They repay the loan when their study is complete, and their income reaches the threshold amount. NTC currently has just under 40 PhD students, from around the world, and is also approved for US student loans.
