Uni students urged to apply for loans

DONCASTER students are being urged to apply for their loans to make sure they receive them for the start of the next academic year.

Student Loan Company is advising returning students to apply early as it today launches a new application process.

Returning students who applied for finance last year that is not means-tested should sign and return the form they receive from the SLC.

Those who want their household income to be taken into account can submit their application online at www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance along with their partner, parent or sponsor’s financial evidence.

If a student’s situation has changed since last year, they can find information and guidance on what funding they can get at www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance
