There are no such plans at present. The Student Loan Company (SLC) is currently working at full capacity delivering a programme of change that underpins the higher education reforms announced in 2011.

Longer term, the SLC is committed to enhancing the disabled students' allowance and child care grant application processes and customer journey, including the provision of an online application, as resources become available.
