Four Key Things You Need to Know About Student Finance

When trying to get access to student finance, there are a few things that you need to know. Student finance has a habit of being somewhat difficult to try and get access to a loan, which is why it is essential for you to understand just a few key things. We're going to cover them here and now, to help you glean a new comprehension of how the system works.


We're not Student Finance, Sorry!

One of the first things that you need to understand is that we're not precisely student finance! If you're here looking for a loan, you're unfortunately out of luck. However, we can provide you with crucial information about your interactions with student finance themselves, so don't go away!

You Don't Repay Until Later

One of the first things that you should probably know about student loans is that you won't have to pay anything back until you've left your education provider behind and are earning over a particular income. The more that you receive each year, the more you pay back on your loan, so it's important to take this into consideration when budgeting.

Two Loans, Two Choices

An important thing to know when interacting with Student Finance is that there are two different kinds of loans you can apply for, and it's important not to get them mixed up and confused. There's the tuition loan, which pays for your course and the education you're receiving, and then there's the maintenance loan, which is given to help people pay their way through things like accommodation. Dr Roy Ale, Marketing Executive, Oxford Summer School, says that 'it's important to remember that while you'll get the tuition loan without any issues in most cases, the maintenance grant is typically awarded to just students. People who are working a full-time job and have a wage won't be assigned anything'.

Student Finance Doesn't Cover All of the UK

Student finance is a competent provider of student loans, but it's important to remember that they aren't the provider everywhere. It's worth doing some research to find out who's in your area and where you should apply for your loan. Student finance covers the bulk of the UK, but they have separate divisions for other parts of the country. Make sure you're applying to the right place!

All in all, these are four key things that you need to know about student finance and how they function as a provider. Getting a loan to cover your education is paramount, and there's no doubt about that. However, you need to make sure that you understand student finance before you try and interact with them. Older students especially can run into issues sometimes, so it's important to know exactly what it is that you want before you go rushing off to contact anyone. Only by making sure you've researched ahead of time and checked all of the facts and figures can you be completely ready to speak to them.
