US Loans for American Students

EU and international students

The University of Central Lancashire participates in the William D. Ford Direct Loan Programme (Direct Loans) for students who are from the United States and who study on our main campus.

Federal Direct Loans are provided by the US Government to help undergraduate and postgraduate students pay for their education, and are available to US Citizens, Permanent Residents, and other Eligible Non-Citizens.
