The TfL website states that you can transfer your balance on a standard Oystercard with an admin fee of £10. However, for the Student Oystercard it does not say this. Does this mean that if a student loses their Oystercard or has it stolen, they cannot claim back the money or tickets they have on their card?

No. There are no special rules for student cards.

In the event of a photo-card being reported lost or stolen, students can claim back their money or tickets on the same terms as other customers.
