All students on eligible courses (with the exception of those who have defaulted on a previous student loan agreement) are eligible to receive the minimum level of student loan regardless of their family income. However, students are not obliged to take out the full amount of loan available to them and information on the numbers who have taken out the minimum loan could only be obtained by examining each student loan account and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
