We are pleased to inform you that the new full-time service for Student Finance England is now available to new and continuing students from today, Monday 4 February.

For new students

  • 31 May 2013 is the deadline for applying for your student finance.
  • If you are planning to start a full-time course at university or college this autumn it’s time to start thinking about your student finance.
  • You do not need to have a confirmed university place to apply for student finance; you can enter your first choice of course, which can be updated easily at a later date.
  • Applications should be completed online as soon as possible at www.gov.uk/studentfinance


Before completing your application you’ll need to have the following to hand:

  • UK passport number
  • Bank Account details
  • National Insurance Number
  • The university or college course details


Should any evidence be requested we would advise sending it straight away. 


Don’t delay
We advise that you submit your application before the deadline to ensure that your funding is in place for the start of the term.
