  1. Thank you dx100uk. Yes unfortunately at the time in 2019, I emailed Erudio with my payslips stating I'm unable to complete the deferment form as I cannot access this on their online portal. Well as I'm only a few years away from the loans being written off, even if I get the deferment reinstated then hopefully that is some good news and these fleecers can sing for the money! Thank you all for your help.
  2. Hi Yes when I first started the C&G Land & Wildlife course, I was told it was easy to apply for an advanced learner loan - as the course is a level 3 Technical Diploma. Land based employment is currently suffering a skills shortage and the application for student finance would be straight forward. I applied in October 2021 and was denied every month due to outstanding arrears. I was told every month by Student Finance that it was because of my Honours Student Loans, arrears of £87 was hampering my eligibility. This £87 was due to a late deferment and I had to pay one month of the loan repayment. (I attended University 1994 - 1999 and took out 4 loans. I've never hit the threshold to repay and have deferred every year since I graduated). However My mum paid this for me, and after 6 further applications to Student Finance for the adult learner loan, each time being denied - it wasn't till March this year I was told by Student Finance that it was the Erudio arrears - (not the Honours Student Loan), that I owed over 3.5K in total as my account was terminated and all money was now owed in full. I would have to pay back this 3.5K before I could reapply for a loan for my tuition fees. Both Student Finance and Erudio confirmed this I'm certainly in no place to afford to pay this sum of money. As such, my second year now hangs in the balance, as well as not actually getting my certificate for completing my first year if I still owe the College my fees. I have read a lot of threads on here specifically about this issue with Erudio simply terminating student loans for silly reasons and also there may have been success in getting a retrospective deferment in order to access further student funding... Otherwise I've wasted a year at College with no qualification at the end of it! Does that make sense? Yes thank you for the advice about contacting Student Finance for backdating deferment. Although I hold no hope considering the mess they have left me in informing me near towards the end of my first year I was ineligible due to this loan Thank you.
  3. Sorry for being a bit jumbled For the years after the sell off (2013) to 2019, when my account was terminated, I had successfully deferred every year to Erudio. I had never had any issues in those intermediate years, only until this termination due to their online portal. I've read many of your advice guidance and comments and yes, now I'm fully aware now what these muppets are! Grurr.... Thank you!
  4. Hello I've been reading many of these posts in order to gain an understanding and how to move forward on my predicament! Before I start the ball rolling - I want to ensure this is the right course of action for my circumstances - so here is a breakdown of my pained dealings with Erudio: My loan with (then SLC) Erudio relate to 1994 - 1996. I've never earned above the threshold and have deferred every year since graduating in 1999. I've checked my online SLC account - and have 'End of Deferment Pack from December 2005 - December 2013 - then nothing further My account was terminated by Erudio in October 2019. This was because I was unable to defer by their online Portal - so I emailed them my payslips showing that I did not meet the threshold and that this should be enough in order to defer my repayment They terminated because they did not receive the deferment form several weeks later I am currently in the last months of my City & Guilds Qualification; and it wasn't until March this year that Student Finance finally explained why I wasn't eligible for an Adult Learner Loan. So currently I owe my College £4.5K in tuition fees. My college have been useless and have left me to resolve. After reading many posts and threads - there maybe a chance I could get the deferment reinstated - and I could reapply for student finance as at this time I have no way to fund my second year. So: I will send a SAR to Erudio Complete the old style Student Loan Deferment Forms for the years 2019, 2020, 2021 retrospectively (Question: would I need to provide evidence I was under the threshold?) Send these forms to the Student Loan Company, with an official complaint along the lines of: how they have treated you and that you do not accept your loans are terminated and that should they continue with this unlawful termination and not accept and confirm your deferment, you will be immediately be contacting the FOS without notice to them. also note that the FOS have already reprimanded Erudio several times upon such actions IS THERE ANYTHING MORE I NEED TO DO? Of note is on a letter from Erudio, it stated (in February 2022); that my account has been outsourced to a third party. I've yet to receive any correspondence from this third party!!! I've asked this question to Erudio and Still no response. Thank you so much for the knowledge and guidance, Ze.
