Hi,

I'm applying to Postgraduate loan as an EU citizen and if I understood correctly, I need to send either my passport or my ID card as a proof of identification. However, in my country it's illegal to give away either of those documents as they are property of the state. What am I suppose to do about that?

Another thing - since it's a PO Box address, I cannot send it via a shipping company with courier, therefore the package cannot be insured. What if the package gets lost along with my passport?

Last thing - where is my guarantee that the employee who will be in charge of my application, therefore my passport, will go along with the GDPR/personal rights to protect my personal information? Or that they won't misuse any personal details? Or that they will indeed return my passport and it won't get lost?

Thank you.

Hi there,


We do require your original ID to be sent to us to be able to confirm your identity. If you are looking to send this by courier you can send to the following address:

Student Finance England
The Memphis Building
Lingfield Point
McMullen Road
Darlington
Co Durham
DL1 1RW


Once we have validated your ID we then return this to you by special delivery and provide you with the tracking number to track your document.

Thanks, Erin
