Important updates for the service.

General Election impact

Due to existing public sector guidelines on communications during the pre-election period, we’ve had to reconsider our communications and engagement plans for 2024. We'll continue to update you on matters related to the student finance system, however we're obliged to hold discussions related to policy changes, including Lifelong Learning Entitlement (LLE). We regret any inconvenience this may cause.

Outstanding portal administration

Please check the Payment Instalment Report (PIR) on the Financials Home tab of the LP Portal for previous academic years and complete any overdue admin tasks to prepare for the new academic year. Please also check your Change of Circumstance (CoC) worklist to ensure you've submitted all outstanding suspensions and withdrawals.

Advanced Learner Loan 2024/25 online application service is now open

The ALL 2024/25 online application service for courses starting from 1 August 2024 is now available. Learners will need their Learning and Funding Information Letter (LAFIL) to make an application. You must not issue LAFILs to learners until your loan facility is visible on the LP Portal. You can view and download the suggested EFSA LAFIL template below.
