Applying for your Student Finance
If you require a tuition fee loan and/or help towards your living costs you should apply for your Student Finance as soon as possible (the deadline to apply for funding from Student Finance England is 27th May 2016 to ensure your funding is in place in time for September 2016). If you are unsure which university and/or course you will be attending in 2016/17 (or even if you will attend university in September) you should still apply for Student Finance, using the university and course details which are most likely. If these change you can simply update your Student Finance application to reflect this.
If applying for your Student Finance online, once you have submitted your application, a Student Declaration form will be available on your online account. You need to print this out, sign, date and return it to the address on the form. You will not receive any payments in September if Student Finance has not received this.
Once you have completed your enrolment we will inform Student Finance of your registration. Please bring sufficient funds to cover you for the first couple of weeks as you will not receive the first instalment of your maintenance loan until 12th September 2016 or three to five workings days after you enrol (whichever is later).
