Plea to get loan applications in

Have your say

SOUTH Yorkshire students are being urged to apply for their loans during the next week - to ensure they meet the May 31 deadline.

Last year over 88,000 Yorkshire students applied for finance from Student Finance England and over a quarter of new students from the region missed the deadline.

Returning students attending universities in the area, such as Sheffield Hallam and Sheffield, should re-apply for their loans by June 29.

Ian Sinkinson, student finance consultant, said: “Students need to get their student finance application sorted before the deadline, as well as checking out what events are on at the universities they’re going to start in summer.”
