Students and customers

Find out everything you need to know about what funding is available to you and how to get it.

Government policy on student finance is set by the Department for Education (for England) and the education departments of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

At Student Loans Company it is our responsibility to undertake the administration and processing involved in both the payment of loans and grants to students, and the payment of tuition fees to higher and further education institutions. In doing so, we provide a broad range of products and services to education funding in the United Kingdom and European Union.

The types and amounts of student finance you'll receive will depend on where you live, and the type of course you study.

If you live in Scotland, your funding is handled by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland.
