Can't apply

    So at first I thought it would simply be not time yet to apply, but since ucas has sent out that email saying final reminder and the deadline for applications being around the corner I now believe something is wrong. When I want to apply for student finance on https://www.student-finance.service.gov.uk I go to "Apply for student finance" then "higher education" then "undergraduate" then "full time" then "2016/17" and then receive the following message:

    You can't apply yet
    You can't currently apply for student finance for next year. Keep checking for when applications open.

    Please help me

    please someone help

    Hi there.

    All applications for 16/17 are available and we have been receiving these ok for a while.

    I would suggest maybe trying to use a different browser or computer or if the problem persists you may need to apply using a paper form.

    So I tried using a different computer or browser, and neither of these worked. Could you please advise me as to how the paper application process works?

    Thank you
