How are Msc and PhDs funded?

Currently my degree is funded via studentfinanceNI.co.uk which I will owe back. Will they also fund a Msc or a PhD and if not, what is the usual way people pay for these?

im 36 today :) , am i too old to consider doing either a msc or PhD with future plans on clinical psychologist? I assume the Msc or research PhD will make me more attractive come application barring they dont consider me too old.

Im still gorgeous btw. You wouldnt know I was 36 lol.

This could depend on the version of spss your using but its in the file/export options ( if i recall correctly).

I use spss17 so i know it can do this but uni still uses spss11.5 and im not so sure if it can.
