the Privacy Notice on page 14.
These terms and conditions (“terms”) and applicable legislation apply to all of the student nance available

Loan Contract
1. I confirm I have read and understood these terms and A Guide to Terms and Conditions available at:
a. if I am studying in England: www.gov.uk/studentfinance

complete. If it is not, I understand that I may not receive student finance, any support I have had may
be withdrawn and I could be prosecuted.
3.
I understand that student finance is provided to me by the Lender:
a. if I am studying in England, the “Lender” means the Secretary of State for Education which
includes any persons acting on his/her behalf and any replacement(s) under section 23(4) of the
Teaching and Higher Education Act 1998 as amended or replaced from time to time (the “Act”);
b.

acting on their behalf and any replacement(s) under section 23(4) of the Act; or
c. if I am studying in Northern Ireland, the “Lender” means the Department for the Economy which
includes any persons acting on its behalf and any replacement(s) under Article 4(3) of the Education
(Student Support) (Northern Ireland) Order 1998 as amended or replaced from time to time (the
“Order”).
4.
I understand:
a. if I am studying in England, these terms, the Act and the regulations made under section 22 of the
Act will apply to any student finance provided to me by the Lender;
b. if I am studying in Wales, these terms, the Act and the regulations made under section 22 of the

c.
if I am studying in Northern Ireland, these terms, the Order and the regulations made under
Article 3 of the Order will apply to any student finance provided to me by the Lender.
5. I understand that “student finance” in these terms means financial support by way of grant(s) and/or

7. I understand that if I have:

(ii) have entered into agreement(s) for a loan under section 22 of the Act (or under the Order in
Northern Ireland) before I reached the age of 18 years,
I am agreeing to “ratify” any and all such student loans by signing these terms. This means that I
confirm I entered into agreement(s) with the Lender and agree to the terms of any such previous
agreement(s). If I have reached the age of 18 and refuse to “ratify” any previous agreement(s), I
understand that I will not be eligible to get any further student finance under the regulations.
8.
I agree to give SLC (and EA if I am studying in Northern Ireland) any information they need in support of
this application for student finance and to seek repayment.
9. I agree to tell SLC (and EA if I am studying in Northern Ireland) immediately if my circumstances
change in any way that might affect my entitlement to student finance. I understand that if I do not do
this I may not get any further payments and I may have to repay the student finance I have already
received. I agree that from the date I submit my student finance application until my loan(s), together
with all and any interest, penalties and charges which apply, is fully repaid I must tell SLC (and EA if
I am studying in Northern Ireland) about any changes in my personal details (including my National
Insurance number) and contact details I have provided.
16
10. I agree that if I get an overpayment of student finance, I need to repay this in full and that any
overpayment may be taken from any future entitlement to student finance.
11. I agree that I will repay the Lender any loan(s), together with all and any interest, penalties and charges
which apply. I understand that this repayment will be due by me to the Lender as a debt. If I breach
any of the terms of my loan, I agree to pay any charges and penalties which apply under the Act (or
Order in Northern Ireland) and applicable regulations. I understand that I will repay my loan(s) through
the United Kingdom (“UK”) tax system and/or I may repay SLC directly. If I live abroad, I will repay my
loan(s) to SLC directly.
12.
I agree that any loan(s) made to me in accordance with the regulations once my application is accepted
by the Lender is a/are contract(s) between me and the Lender. I understand that I am liable for my
loan(s) and will be charged interest from the first payment of the loan advance by the Lender.
13.
I agree to tell SLC if I leave the UK to live outside the UK or if for any other reason I am outside the UK
tax system for more than three months.
Legal Action and Applicable Law
14. In the event of any legal action:
(i) if my home address is within UK, I agree that the laws of the place of my home address (as stated

Sharing Information
15. If I am in breach of these terms and/or the regulations, I agree that the Lender may share information
held about me and my account with third parties, including the government or a government agency of
another country, who may help to locate me and/or help take action to recover any payments I owe.

country you expect to be studying in.
If you choose to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan for academic year 2020/21, the regulations
regarding repayment of this loan are different for each country.
Tuition Fee Loan
REPAYABLE
All students can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan to cover the fees that are charged by their
university or college.
If you are unsure about the tuition fee amount you will be charged, please contact your university
or college for clarification.
You may not be eligible for a Tuition Fee Loan if you already hold a UK degree.
The Tuition Fee Loan borrowed will be paid directly to the relevant university or college, in three
instalments within the academic year, once your attendance is confirmed.

If you are studying England or Wales and are in the first year of a graduate entry medical or
dental programme course you can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan of up to £5,535 (if fee charged is
£9,000). However, you will need to pay the first £3,465 of the tuition fee amount charged by your
university or college in your first year. You may receive funding from the NHS for following years.
Bursaries and Scholarships
NON-REPAYABLE
Bursaries and scholarships are financial awards made by some universities and colleges to
provide additional assistance to their students. The amount offered would be at their discretion.
Students who started their course in academic year 2006/07 or after may be eligible for a bursary
or scholarship from their university or college. If you are eligible for a bursary or scholarship
from your university or college you will be assessed for this automatically and you will be sent a
further form to complete.
19EU/20N/2021
Fee Grant
NON-REPAYABLE
If you will be studying in Wales and your course started on or after 1 September 2012 and
before 1 August 2018 you may be eligible for a Fee Grant if the tuition fee charged by your
university or college is more than £4,720.
The Fee Grant amount is the difference between the maximum Tuition Fee Loan available
(£4,720) and the tuition fee being charged by the university or college.
For example;
Tuition fee charged (up to £9,250) - Tuition Fee Loan maximum (£4,720) = Fee Grant
entitlement (up to £4,530)
You don't need to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan to receive a Fee Grant. However if you choose
not to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan you will need to pay the difference to your university or
college.
Your Fee Grant will be paid directly to your university or college in three instalments within the
academic year.
You will not be eligible to receive the Fee Grant if you are undertaking a course at a private
university or college in Wales.
