  • Scanned copies of page 16 of the document, signed by yourself, are acceptable and can be sent to
  • Alternatively the front cover and your signed copy of Page 16 can be sent to Student Awards Team, Department of Education, Sport and Culture, Hamilton House, Peel Road, Douglas, IM1 5EZ. Please also print your full name in block capitals on the signed copy of page 16.

  • If you have applied for a Loan for the first time and haven’t received any documents from Student Awards then please contact us at

Delays in receiving your signed Loan Application will cause delays in your payments being made to your University.
