IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR MFA STUDENTS
U.S. Department of Education Federal Regulations state that a student must remain in the country that they are studying in for the duration of their studies to retain loan eligibility. This means that any students wishing to spend the second year of the MFA in the U.S. (or any non-U.K. country) is not eligible to receive loans.
Any holidays/vacations and trips back to the U.S. (including during the summer between year one and two) are permitted but overseas placements are not. Please contact us for more information.
