HELP: MA Student Loan funding at 'Private College'?

    I was planning on applying for a £10,000 Postgraduate student loan from Student Finance England to cover a 1 year MA at Schumacher College (Devon).

    All eligibility criteria on the website suggested no problems with this.

    However, I have just been told that as Schumacher College is a 'Private College' I will not be able to apply to the funding, though various other websites, including the governments own, have suggested that I am still 100% eligible.

    Very confusing...

    Please can you clear this up for me?

    I'm sure there are many people confused by this issue.
