Higher Education Funding
Student Finance NI, through the Educational Authority, administer financial support to Higher Education students in Northern Ireland in conjunction with the Student Loans Company (SLC). Please refer to Student Financial Support Section on our website for details on how to apply.
The Student Loans Company will make tuition fee award payments directly to the College, on the student’s behalf, after confirmation of enrolment and attendance is received.
At time of enrolment:
Students who have received their award letter from Student Finance NI must present this to Customer Services. The amount of the award will be deducted from the total fee and the student will be invoiced for any remaining fee.
Students who have not received their award letter from Student Finance NI must sign a liability form and complete the direct debit mandate.
Confirmation of funding from Student Finance NI must be submitted to Customer Services in the College as soon as it is received.
The amount of the award will be deducted from the total fee and the student will be invoiced for any remaining fee.
In all circumstances, the student is responsible for the payment of the total fee whether they complete the course or not. In the event of Student Loans Company not releasing the full amount of the award, the student will be required to pay the remaining balance of the total fee.
