Some questions regardind Student Loan for an spanish applicant watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm interested in studying a foundation degree in England the next year, but I'm a bit confused with the government's student loan:

    1. When would I have to apply? I haven't even send my applications through UCAS yet, and the universities are set to reply by May, I think. When would be the best time to ask the SLC for the standard EU Studen Loan?

    2. I'll be 17 at the time of beginning my course, and I don't know which are the consequences of this. Would I need to create a bank account? What would my parents need to do?

    Hello Jordi,

    EU applications will be available early 2015 & you can apply straight away so that we can confirm your eligibility for funding. Should your first choice of course change at a later date then this can be updated on your application.

    As an EU student you will be entitled to a tuition fee loan only & this will be paid directly to your chosen university.

    Your parents will not have to do anything as your application is only for tuition fees.
