Hello!

I have been trying to apply for a postgraduate loan online but it refused to recognise my course - PhD Political and Social Thought at the University of Kent.

To get around this, Wednesday last week I sent in a postal application to SFE. Today (Saturday) I have received a letter from SFE saying my online application has been cancelled because my account has been inactive.

I am worried this will delay my application. What can I do?

Were you applying for the right loan? A postgraduate loan is for masters degrees. For a PhD you should have applied for a doctoral loan - and if the course isn’t listed you need to get advice from your university - often universities don’t include detailed course titles for postgraduate funding.

If things are cancelled or you’ve sent the wrong form then speak to SFE on Twitter or Facebook by direct message - they can look into your application and sort out any problems quicker there than other channels.

Hello,

This course isn’t listed on our database; you’ll need to speak to the University of Kent and ask them to add the course to our systems.

We’d recommend contacting us on either Facebook or Twitter regarding your application; we’ll check what’s happening and clarify it with you.

Thanks, Erin N.
