2016/17 Student Finance England resources - to support your open days

It’s time to start preparing for a new academic year.

04 June 2015

We have created a range of helpful tools and resources to help you explain to prospective students what finance is available through Student Finance England.

These include:

  • A handy quick guide you can give to students at your open day events, giving them high-level information about what they need to know before they apply for their student finance. You can order printed copies of these by visiting our website: http://www.practitioners.slc.co.uk/resources/order-forms/order-form-201617.aspx
  • A series of new interactive student finance quick start guides to allow students and parents to find out the different types of student finance available – including how to apply and repay – all in one central place.
  • A 60-second film to share with your students to help explain student finance and the application process.
  • A PowerPoint presentation complete with the notes you need to deliver student finance IAG to your students and their families.

SFE’s student finance zone

We have given SFE’s dedicated student finance zone on The Student Room (TSR) a revamp. It’s now easier than ever for students to use and find the information they are looking for. Watch our preview film for a run down of the highlights!

There’s a range of communication tools to help you share the zone with students and their families. These include a short preview film; a poster you can print and display on your noticeboards or at open days; a selection of suggested news lines you can use in communications or social media channels, along with our ready-made social media graphic; and a link button graphic you can use on your own website to take students directly to our zone.

And it’s all available on our practitioner website, along with instructions on how to use everything – it’s that easy!

And don’t forget, we also have Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages where students can access up to date information and support ahead of applying for their student finance.

The quick start guides and the zone are updated regularly with relevant content and important news on application launch and deadline dates so please bookmark these and check back often! And encourage your students to do the same.

The resources section of the practitioner website will also be updated regularly with new information and materials so please bookmark this page too!
