Making an Application

You can apply for Student Finance up to 9 months after the beginning of your course. To ensure your funding is in place for the beginning of the academic year, you should apply as soon as possible.

New Students

If you are a new student, or a continuing student who has not previously applied for Student Finance, you can do this online. If you cannot apply online you can download paper forms here.

If you wish your application to be means tested (dependent on household income), you will need to provide additional evidence to ensure that your entitlement is assessed accurately:

 Make sure that you return your declaration to Student Finance otherwise the payment of your loan may be delayed.

Continuing Students

If you have already applied for Student Finance they should contact you directly once applications open. If your circumstances have not changed, you simply confirm this with Student Finance by completing the continuing students application. If applications are open, and you have not heard from Student Finance, please contact them on 0300 100 0607 to discuss your situation and avoid any delays to your payments.

Make sure that you return your declaration to Student Finance otherwise the payment of your loan may be delayed.
