Loans for Canadian students

If you are a Canadian student, you can apply to borrow a loan from the Canada Student Loans Program.

Criteria

If you are a Canadian student, you can apply to borrow a loan from the Canada Student Loans Program. 

The Canada Student Loans Program provides repayable loans and non-repayable grants to help Canadian students pay for their post-secondary education. 

Federal loans and grants are delivered in partnership with participating provinces and territories and are available to: 

  • full- and part-time students; 
  • students from low- and middle-income families; 
  • students with dependants; and 
  • students with permanent disabilities.

How to Apply

For information on applying please see the Canada Student Loans Program website at: https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/programs/canada-student-loans-grants.html  or visit the website of your provincial Student Aid Office.

Your provincial Student Student Aid Office will process your loans. 

How do we support your application?

The University of Kent does not administer Canadian Student Loans. However, we do provide confirmations of enrolment and program information forms to support your loan application.

Confirmation of Enrolment / Registration Forms: Before any student loan monies are disbursed to you, your lender may require the University of Kent to verify your student status to confirm that you have either been accepted on to a programme of study, or are already registered at the University of Kent. This is usually done via a Confirmation of Enrolment or Confirmation of Registration form.

Confirmation of Enrolment / Registration Forms

To have your form authorised by the University of Kent: 

1. Complete the Student section of the form (do not complete any other sections)  

2. Provide the following information with the form: 

  • your full name 
  • your University of Kent application or student number
  • your email address
  • your Social Insurance Number (only if the form requires this)

3. Send us the form via one of the following methods: 

  • Email a scanned copy of the form to foreignloans@kent.ac.uk 
  • Bring the form to the main Registry reception on the Canterbury campus 
  • Mail the form to: 
    The Foreign Loans Unit 
    Enrolment Management Services, The Registry, University of Kent, Canterbury, Kent, CT2 7NZ, United Kingdom 

We will then: 

  • Complete, authorise, and stamp the form 
  • Send the form on to your lender in Canada 
  • Once the form has been sent to your lender, we will email you a scanned copy of the form. 

Program Information Forms 

Before your provincial Student Aid Office will decide what loans and/or grants you are entitled to, they may want to know more about your intented program of study. This is usually done via a Program Information form.

Program Information Forms

To have your form completed by the University of Kent: 

1. Ensure your form is populated with your personal and program information. 

2. Send us the form via the following method: 

  • Email a downloaded or scanned PDF of the form to foreignloans@kent.ac.uk 

We will then: 

  • Complete, authorise, and stamp the form 
  • Return the form directly to you (unless your provincial authority requires us to send the form directly to them)
