Student Loans

(28 October 2014)

We’ve had queries from a small number of students about applying for loans with Student Finance England. We’ve advised them that, under the Common Awards scheme, students won’t have access to loans via Durham.

As a reminder: any TEI which wants its students to have access to loans would need to apply for Course Designation Status for Alternative Providers of Higher Education. Feedback from Student Finance England indicates that this remains true for other forms of student support payments (e.g. disability support, grants).
