The Student Loans Company (SLC) pays maintenance loans into your bank account, and any help you have been given with fees goes direct to your higher education institution. Once you have enrolled the SLC will ask us to confirm your enrolment to release the payments – you do not have to do anything. If you are on a part-time higher education course, you can apply to Student Finance England at www.gov.uk/ student-finance for help with tuition fees in the form of a non-means tested loan. If you have applied for all the help to which you are entitled and still find yourself in financial hardship, call in to Student Services to find out whether there is any other help available. Please note: if you cannot pay your fees or any other costs for which you are liable, it is important that you seek advice from us as soon as possible. If you do not, we may take disciplinary and/or legal action, and you may be prevented from enrolling on future courses.
