Wa Alaikum Salam,

The CDL mentioned in the above question and that described in the link is not permissible.

The DfES pays the interest on your loan while you?re learning and for up to one month afterwards. You then repay the loan to the bank over an agreed period at a fixed rate of interest.

Due to the return of this loan evolving around interest, it is Haraam.

And Allah knows best.
