For students to be eligible for funding from Student Finance England, they must be studying on an eligible course at a provider registered with the Office for Students (OfS).
The OfS is the new independent regulator for higher education in England and all higher education providers need to register with the OfS for their students to be eligible for student support in the 2022-23 academic year.
No provider will be able to confirm whether student support is available until it has a decision from the OfS. Visit the Office for Students webpage for more information. The relevant guidance is on page 8 of Regulatory Advice 2: Registration of Current Providers for 2019-20).
