Loan Disclosures

Code of Conduct for Educational Loans

In order to prohibit a conflict of interest with the responsibilities of an agent with respect to private education loans, staff at the University with responsibility for Federal and Private Education Loans from the United States are prohibited from the following:

  • Revenue sharing arrangements with lenders
  • Receiving gifts from a lender or loan servicer
  • Obtaining financial benefits from lenders or loan servicers
  • Providing a preferred list of lenders.
  • Offers of funds for private loans

Preferred Lenders List

The University does not have a preferred Lenders List but will, where possible, work with whichever private lender a prospective borrower decides to use. Students should be aware that the majority of private lenders choose not to offer loans when borowers are studying outside the USA. This is why, on our US Loans information the only loans we list as being accessible are the US Federal Direct Stafford and PLUS loans or the private Sallie Mae loans.

Gainful Employment Disclosures

The University of Glasgow is approved only to provide federal lending for students on a degree programme. Therefore there are no Gainful Employment Disclosures to report.
