However please note that the are residency restrictions - You must be resident in the United Kingdom or European Union for a purpose other than full time education for a period of 3 years as at 1 September in the year the course commences.
There are also restrictions on the number of years for which a tuition fee loan may be granted, This may effect your entitlement to obtain a loan if:-
  • You have previously received support for a Undergraduate course.
  • You are enrolling to retake a year of the course (although you are normally permitted a tuition fee loan to retake ONE year of the course
  • You already have a qualification and enrolling on this course does not give you a qualification of a higher level (This applies irrespective of how the previous qualification was funded).
All students are required to sign a declaration on enrollment accepting personal responsibility for payment of the tuition fees, if you are relying on a tuition fee loan to pay your fees, it is strongly recommended that you make appropriate enquiries with the office that is processing your application before enrolling and that you disclose all relevant information.

Tuition fee loans are paid directly to Ravensbourne and Students are required to show their "University or College payment advice" supplied by the Student Loans Company or other suitable confirmation on enrolment.
