We are a non-profit making government-owned organisation that administers loans and grants to 1.5m students annually. We have a total of 8.5m customers and, as at March 2020, manage a loan book worth £156.5bn.
We play a central role in supporting the higher education (HE) and further education (FE) sectors. We do this by making timely and accurate payments of Maintenance Loans to learners and Tuition Fee Loans to HE and FE providers.
We work with the Department for Education (DfE, England), and the devolved administrations in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. We also work with the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS), the Education Authority for Northern Ireland (EANI), HE and FE providers and other delivery partners.
