Getting ready for 2016

10 December 2015.

There's less than one week to go until 16 December, and more than 63,000 students have applied for their 2016 Student Allowances and Loans. There are lots of ways you can help.

It's a date. Apply by 16 December.

This approach allows us to manage the volume of applications in order to help students get organised for the start of the new study year, which also benefits education providers by getting their fee payments made earlier.

Your help to spread the message is a big contributor to our success and we've produced some material that will help you do this easily, such as:

  • text to use on your website and in e-newsletters
  • images in a range of sizes for you to use on your website and in emails
  • images in common screen resolutions that can be used as screensavers or wallpapers in libraries or computer suites.

Text for websites and newsletters
