Issue 1

Welcome to Exchange!
Introduction from Derek Ross, Director of Operations and Customer Services

Hello and welcome to the first issue of Exchange – your new interactive student finance eMag!

Exchange has been launched to support you through the key academic milestones by covering all the latest student finance news and policy updates. You’ll also find articles and guest columns from student finance experts to help you when talking to students and their families.

At Student Loans Company, it’s our mission to enable young people to invest in their futures. This year we’ve already processed 1.1 million applications for student finance of the expected 1.3 million. And, in line with our vision to become a digital, customer-focused, centre of excellence, 1.13 million of these applications have been online.

We’ve seen many more successes over the last year but we know there are some challenging times ahead – and, you’ll play an essential role in overcoming them by helping us deliver accurate and timely information. So it’s important that we continue to work together to support students and their families through their journey.

We really hope you find the information in Exchange helpful when talking to students about student finance. You can let us know what you think by taking our quick survey to tell us what you like, what you don’t and what you’d like to see in future issues.

Enjoy this issue,

Derek Ross
Director of Operations and Customer Services
