I believe others in an IVA had got student loans --- it is generally acceptable to the IP because they do not have to be repaid during the life of the IVA, but you would have to discuss this with your own IP.

I had a student loan in my IVA. I was a part-time student so my student loan was for fees only which got paid directly to my collegege, I didn’t get any maintenance loans etc, not sure if that makes any difference or not!

If you are in an iva and want to apply for a student loan I presume you are still able to meet your monthly repayments for your iva through paid employment and any studies you are doing are in addition to work ?

I began my iva 11 months ago and 2 months into that I left my job and became a full time student, with an NHS bursary and student loan. I made Knightsbridge aware of this straight away and because I could still meet my payments and there wasn't a significant change they were absolutely fine with it. The student loans company do not require a credit check so you'll be fine in obtaining a loan. Good luck.
