College - R (Guildhall College) v Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills [2013] EWHC 3257 (Admin), [2014] ELR 10

Queen’s Bench Division

Cranston J

22 July 2013

Guildhall College (the college) was a private education college providing further and higher education. As of September 2011 the college had two courses designated for the purposes of receiving government-subsidised student loan funding: a two-year full-time HND in Business and a two-year full-time HND in Computing and Systems Development. The letter containing that decision on designation emphasised that it was only those two courses which were designated and that the college should contact the Student Loan Company (SLC) should there be a change in the structure of the course or a validating institution or any other organisational change. The letter also highlighted that designated courses were subject to periodic review and that it was imperative that the college respond to any request for information if it were to retain designated status for a course. Apart from those two designated courses, the college had a variety of other courses, including HNDs in Health and Social Care, Travel and Tourism and Hospitality Management. Since those other courses were not designated, students undertaking them were not eligible for student loans.
