My story

[p]The OfS determined that the College passed 4 of its 5 tests for registration, which means that the College cannot offer student loans to new students. Returning students on existing courses as at 31 July will be able to access a reduced loan.[/p][p]However there are some of our existing students who have changed courses over the summer and the OfS is treating these students as new students and consequently they do not have access to student loans at all.[/p][p]This unfair and misguided decision by the OfS means that some of our hardworking students will be negatively impacted and may even have to stop their training for mission and ministry.[/p][p]The College wants to help our students by providing bursaries to help with the lack of finance that the students face.[/p][p]If you can help, by donating money, it will go straight into a restricted fund, to only be used for student bursaries for those students affected by the OfS decision.[/p]
