Eligible UEL students can take out Federal Direct Loans from the US government to help pay for school related expenses in the UK (our federal school code is G30450). In addition to Federal Direct loans, we also process funding from the US Dept. of Veteran’s Affairs, College Savings Plans, Canadian student loans and other ad hoc overseas scholarships and bursaries.

For full details on the Federal Loan application process, the types of loan available (including interest rates), eligibility criteria and all other relevant information please see our Federal Loan Guidance document.

Federal regulations require schools administering Federal Direct Loans to provide Consumer Information Disclosures to its students. We also have a Default Management Plan which is designed to help students in receipt of Federal Loan funds understand their repayment responsibilities when taking on loans to fund their education.

The Student Money Advice and Rights Team (SMART) are responsible for administering Federal Direct Loans at the University of East London. If you have any questions that are not answered by looking through the information above, please contact us at federalaid@uel.ac.uk
