Frequently Asked Questions

Does the university receive electronic copies of my MPN and SAR?


Are loans paid out in a single disbursement?

No, Direct and PLUS loans are disbursed in instalments at the start of each term.

What do I do if I think my CoA has been incorrectly assessed?

If you feel that the cost of attending the university is significantly different from the CoA that has been calculated, you should send an email to studentfinance at warwick dot ac dot uk, enter your student number and “Cost of Attendance” in the subject field. You will then be sent a form to complete and may be asked to provide evidence as to why you think your CoA has not been calculated correctly.

Will my loan be available once I arrive in the UK?

No, the university can only certify your loan once you have enrolled. It is advisable to ensure you have enough money to cover the period between enrolment and when your loan is made available to you.

Do you certify clinical or surgical degrees e.g. MBChB?


Can I obtain Direct and PLUS loans for an MBA by distance learning?

No. Distance learning courses are generally not eligible for federal loans. Currently the only option that the University of Warwick is aware of is the Sallie Mae Smart Option loan.

Who should I contact if I have any queries?

Paul Cooke, Student Finance Manager, can be contacted via email on p dot j dot cooke at warwick dot ac dot uk or by telephone on 0044 (0) 24 765 22636.
