The University is listed in the Education (Recognised Bodies) (England) Order 2013 as a recognised degree-awarding body.

Code of conduct for education loans

To prevent a conflict of interest with the responsibilities of an agent with respect to private education loans, all staff at the University with responsibility for Federal and private education loans from the USA are prohibited from:

  • revenue-sharing arrangements with any lender
  • receiving gifts from a lender, a guarantor or a loan servicer
  • contracting arrangements providing financial benefit from any lender or affiliate of a lender
  • directing borrowers to particular lenders or refusing or delaying loan certifications
  • offers of funds for private loans
  • call centre or financial aid office staffing assistance
  • advisory board compensation

Preferred lender lists

The University will, in most cases, work with whichever private lender a prospective borrower decides to use. Prospective borrowers should be aware that the majority of private lenders choose not to offer loans to students studying outside the USA.
