    Dear All,

    I have a question regarding application for the 2012/2013 EU student finance form.

    The form reads

    "This form should be returned within 9 months of the start of your academic year"

    Does this mean 9 months before or 9 months after? :confused: If it was 9 months before, this would have basically meant November, and by then I hadn't even finished my UCAS applications! How could I have been expected to fill in a request for student finance without even knowing if I would have gone to the UK to study?

    It means you can apply for your tuition fee loan up to 9 months after the start of your course.

    Thank you!

    You have no idea ho bad I felt when I read it the other way round... I'm sorry, I guess I'm just all over the place with applications and stuff, so, so much stress!
