  • in the online UCAS application there is a section which says "Fee Code" and the options are:

    01 Private finance
    02 LEA/SAAS/NIBd/EU/Chl/IoM
    04 Research councils
    05 DH/Regional Health
    06 UKL govt osea award
    07 Training agency
    08 Other UK govt award
    09 Overseas Agency
    10 UK Industry/commerce
    90 Other Source
    99 Not Known

    I'm not sure what it means... ... if I'm going to ask for a loan from the SLC (Student Loan COmpany) or applying to a bursary from the uni that does not count for this right? so it would be private finance??

    I NEED HELP!! thank you!!
  • It'll most likely be 02. Which means you'll apply to your LEA and be assessed for your income, then they'll work out how much grant you're entitled to. Most people will be selecting 02.

  • but I'm from Spain (not UK) so I can only ask for the fee-loan (not the income-assessed maintenance loan)

    can someone explain what those letter in 02 mean? thanx!

  • Just seen that 'EU' is in 02, so you'd probably select that, seeing as Spain is in the EU. Might want to double check with someone else though.
