    I'm on an unpaid placement at a research facility abroad it's my 3rd year. I was told that I should be loaned my full amount but have only been loaned a small sum of what I normally get, 1/3 of my usual student loan.My uni has emailed and posted a letter stating this 2 weeks ago to get my loan amended. I can not call to see how my application is going as it would be £1 a minute. How do I see if this will be resolved / SFE has all information needed?

    Hi BobbiBen

    If you are undertaking an unpaid research placement in a UK or overseas institution

    • A letter from the University/College (HEI) to confirm details of the placement is required
    • We only require evidence for unpaid placements as you are eligible to receive full support.


    Correspondence received is currently taking 21 working days to be processed.

    You can check the progress online, once reassessed, you can be confident any additional entitlement will be backdated and submitted as an interim payment and your future instalments adjusted accordingly.

    Thanks Rona
