Student Finance applications for students starting their university study later this year are open now.
Please see below some top application tips.
Gather together the right information
To apply, students will need to gather the following information:
· Passport (or original birth/adoption certificate)
· University and course details
· National Insurance number
· Bank details
Parents who are supporting the application may find it helpful to have their P60 for 2018/19 and any other income information to hand.
Students should apply early to ensure that you receive your loan payments in time for the start of the university term. You can do this by visiting www.gov.uk/student-finance
If you are planning to take a gap year, then you don’t need to apply now; you will need to make your application at this time next year.
Apply even if you don’t have a confirmed place
It doesn’t matter if you haven't yet decided where it is you want to study. Just apply using your current first choice and this can be updated easily later through your online account.
