Student Loans: Important Dates for 2011

If you're studying in September on a higher education course in the UK and applying for student loans there are a few important dates for 2011 that you'll need to keep a close eye on. You should have already applied for UCAS and accepted your offers at this point, as UCAS deadlines also related to student loans. If you're applying for a student loan next year (academic year 2012/2013) these dates do not change and you should take note of the UCAS deadlines to avoid delays in your student loans application (particularly deadlines for accepting course places).
