In July I made an online account and applied for funding for studying at the University of Edinburgh. After I contacted Customer Service I learned that, for EU nationals, only loans for English universities were available.
I sent an email to complain about not being able to create a new application or deleting my old one.
I received this response from Darlington Complaints:
I am sorry to learn of the issues you have experienced regarding your
Postgraduate Loan application and I would like to apologise that you have
been unable to update your application online and for any inconvenience
this has caused.
I can confirm that non UK EU students must be studying at a university in
England on a master’s degree to be eligible for Postgraduate Loan funding.
As you have applied for a master’s degree course at Edinburgh University
you are not eligible for funding. In addition, universities are instructed
to provide details of all courses which are eligible for support on our
shared database. If a course is not present it would either not be
eligible for support, under a different name or the university have not yet
put this on our database.
I have requested that your application is cancelled so that you can create
another application should you wish to apply for funding for a master’s
degree course at a university in England as you have mentioned you have
received an offer to study at an English university. You can create a new
application online or by completing the paper application form attached to
One month later...still stuck. And I sent an application by post which turned to be on the wrong form. Now I can't sent another because my ID card hasn't been returned. I was told it was sent back on the 11th. Two weeks later and still nothing. I can't even retrieve my passport without my ID card. How is the evidence sent back?
Is it that hard to repair an account? Can I make another one?
