Hello,
I am applying for a student loan and it seems like I don't need to have a UK bank account to do it, however it requires me to have a Sort Code. As I have an Italian bank account, I don't have a Sort Code, but a Swift Code (8 letters long).
Do I need to set up a UK account?
Thank you,

Lucrezia

Hi LuMarca,

Yes, you will need a UK bank account in order to receive funding from us. Are you applying for Tuition Fee Loan only, Maintenance Loan or the Postgraduate Loan?

Thanks, Tégan

Hi!

I'm applying for a Postgraduate Loan.
Do I need to set up a UK bank account to apply for the loan or can I open it after receiving a positive response?

Thank you!

Thanks,

We would need UK bank details for you to receive the funding. Without these we would still be able to assess your application however we won't be able to pay you.

Warm regards, Tégan

Hi,
As far as I'm aware Paypal are not registered as a UK bank and won't be able to provide an account number or sort code. You can set up a UK bank account once you arrive in the UK.
Thanks, Isaac.
