If you have an approved Postgraduate Loan, the Student Loan Company will pay the funds to your bank account once Royal Holloway has confirmed your registration on an eligible course. You are therefore a self-funded student and will need to make a fee payment in order to enrol.
If you are planning to use your loan to pay your tuition fees you must forward a copy of the approved loan confirmation to the Student Fees Team before you can complete enrolment. You also need to have returned your signed declaration form to the SLC.
If the loan amount you are receiving each year is equal to or more than your fees for the year you will be permitted to complete enrolment , your registration will be confirmed to the SLC and your tuition fees will be split in to 3 equal instalments in line with the loan payments due to you.
If you are eligible to receive the Alumni Discount, this will be allocated to the first instalment.
Please note the fees for each year must be paid in full before continuing onto the next year if you are on a 2 year course.
If your fees are higher than the maximum loan entitlement per year then you will be expected to pay the shortfall before your registration is confirmed to the SLC. The balance of your tuition fee, covered by the loan, will be split in to 3 equal instalments in line with the loan payments due to you.
If you have applied for something other than the maximum amounts and do not fall into either of the categories above, then you must pay 50% of your fees at enrolment and the balance at the start of term 2.
Receiving your loan
Once you have completed registration at the university, we will contact the Student Loans Company to confirm this and your payment will be released within 2-5 working days of this confirmation being sent.
Please note that this process will ONLY release payment if you have returned your Signed Declaration form to the SLC confirming that you accept the Terms and Conditions of the loan. It takes them about 10 working days to process your declaration once you send it in, so please ensure you allow sufficient time for this.
