Undergraduate UK Government Student Loan

Campus Based Students

The University assumes that students who have not had a period of suspension and who are on an eligible full time undergraduate course or a PGCE course, will choose to take out a tuition fee loan. You will therefore be automatically allowed to register.

If you have had a period of suspension, you will be required to email notification of your approved award to Student Fees and Income Management so they can allow you to register and claim your tuition fee loan at the appropriate point.

If you have made an application to The Students Loans Company and your application was declined, you must contact Student Fees and Income Management to advise this and you will be reverted to a standard payment schedule of paying two instalments.

If you are about to start Year 1 of your Graduate Medicine Programme, you are not eligible for full Government funding. As such you will need to pay your liability in a standard payment schedule of two instalments. If you are completing Year’s 2, 3 and 4 of a Graduate Medicine Programme and Year’s 5 and 6 of a MCHbH. the University will assume you will take maximum Government support from the Student Loans Company and the NHS. You will therefore be automatically allowed to register. If you are not eligible for either or both of these routes of funding you need to advise Student Fees and Income Management and your liability will need to be paid in a standard payment schedule of two instalments.

Distance Learning Students

If your undergraduate tuition fee loan has been approved before the payment deadline shown on your offer email, please forward a copy of your loan confirmation to the relevant Distance Learning Team by this deadline.

If the payment deadline shown on your offer email is within the next two weeks, but you have not yet received confirmation from Student Finance England that your loan has been approved, please contact the relevant Distance Learning Team. They will be able to provide a questionnaire that will informally assess your eligibility for an Undergraduate Loan and, depending on the answers given, may enable you to register for your studies despite your tuition fee loan not yet being approved.

If you do not contact the relevant Distance Learning Team as outlined above, you will not be able to register for your studies.
