    Hello, so obviously the applications online are going to be open next week but what i was wondering is, see when you fill out your form online and put your 1st choice etc etc, do you need to pay up front then or do you pay later on ? I dont know whether i would be able to fill the application form out myself or whether I would need my father's bank details ? ...

    IIRC you pay once the first lot of loans are in, not when you apply but that's going back nearly 4 years now so I could be wrong. I don't remember the application forms having a space for bank details, again, I could be wrong though.

    Oh! And that's for Aberdeen Uni, not RGU.

    You have to pay a £100 deposit when you confirm the accommodation and sign the contract.

    Is this for RGU or Aberdeen? I thought we got a pack in the post before online applications opened?

    It's for Aberdeen. Yeah i got mine today, but my dad lives in England and im in Glasgow so we cant sit together and do it so i was just wondering if i needed his bank details to make a deposit because if i do then he'll have to fill the application form out ha

    Oh right, I havnt got my pack yet :/ Hope I dont end up somewhere dead expensive as a result! When do the applications open, you wont need any money/card details to apply, just when you accept the contact, which will be later.

    Ooooh that was brave! haha, It just means that if you dont get your first choice (which is unlikey as you have both Fyfe and Wavell) then you will just be placed anywhere ha! + i dunno, i guess you could if you wanted
