As a distance learner, what loans am I eligible to receive?
Students studying a Distance Learning (off-campus) program are exempt from taking out Federal Loans to fund their study. They are, however, eligible to apply for a Private Loan from Sallie Mae. The Smart Option Loan provided by Sallie Mae is the only private loan currently available to American students studying at the University of Birmingham.
More information about the Sallie Mae Smart Option can be found at the private loan webpage.
