    Hi,

    I am trying to apply for my reduced student loan through SFE for a NHS funded course, starting September 16. However, I have studied for 2 years previously, and when I try and apply to SFE, it says that because I am behind on payments I am unable to submit an application.

    I've tried calling the number for guidance, but none of options apply and I can't get through to anyone (I had the loan in 2011). I had a look at my balance and it says I am in arrears of over 6K, but I earn less than 15k a year. I am so confused!! Does this mean I am not eligible? Please help!

    I would have thought you were eligible because technically you're not behind - because you've not met the criteria to start paying.

    If this was me, I'd press one of the options, (I can't remember any of the options off the top of my head) and speak to someone. Actually, you may need to speak to someone at the student loans company, rather than student finance England?

    Thanks, I think I will try one of the generic numbers later today. I would have thought this would be the case, but I think because I wasn't working for a while and now I've been working but under the threshold they've just been adding it up?
