Here's my story. I am an American, currently living with my English boyfriend in London. My boyfriend supports us which enables me to go back to university over here. I need to apply for a student loan to fund my education. I have cosigners who are also based in the UK. I have paid my bachelor's degree loans off($80K)in full already from my degree back home. I will be accepted easily for the loan with my credit and my cosigners' credit/work. Where can I go to apply for a loan? I didn't want to go from place to place applying for the loan and have the hard pull on my credit from each. Thanks for any help, it is MUCH appreciated.

Was I the only one reading your post in English accent?
(Sorry, OffTopic)

You need UK credit score to apply for loans over there. I suppose you go to a bank to apply for a loan.

You might be able to use your credit report to validate you are a good UK credit risk, depending on where you apply. I did this for a different country (not UK).
Have you checked with the school you plan to attend, the UK may have better school loan programs through the school, as they are less pro-private industry doing everything than the US.
Lastly, I pray you are not getting a Masters in Arts as the earnings potential is not there like other majors.
