Your loan allowance will depend on your level of study and type of course.

As a general rule, all students can borrow 18 items, with an extra allocation of School Experience items for certain education or children's literature based courses (15 items). All staff and students also have an additional loan allowance for Inter Library Loans.

Part-time and distance learners are entitled to a document delivery service and a postal loan service.
