Higher Education Contacts

You can use the table below to find the right person to speak to at your first choice or current university. The contact at this institution will be able to advise you on the evidence you need to send to Student Finance England, Wales or Northern Ireland and SAAS. They can also help you find out what other support the university might offer (e.g. accommodation, bursary options, etc).

If you can’t find your University get in touch.

If you are a HEP and would like to update or add your contact information, please email us.

If you’re an estranged student at a UK University, or you’re planning to go to University, and you’re struggling to evidence your family estrangement with Student Finance England, Wales or Northern Ireland, please write to The Student Loans Company’s new specialist team for estranged students: [email protected]. They can help if you can’t find the right evidence or haven’t told anybody about your estrangement.
