How to apply for a loan
You should apply for your loan through your provincial/territorial student assistance office or website. When you apply for a loan, your single application is considered by both the provincial and federal government.
Federal loans are handled by the National Student Loans Service Centre. Provincial loans are handled by provincial governments and student aid branches.
Your loan will be processed by your provincial Student Finance Department and not the University of Brighton.
We are a public institution with the code PVEW. Some provinces/territories may use a different code.
Verifying your student status
You may need us to verify your student status before you receive any financial aid. We will confirm that you have been accepted onto a course or are already enrolled with us. Please email us to request this and quote your student number or other reference in your message.

If you want to make a tax credit claim please make sure you have receipts with the name of the university.
