Reminder: 27th May Student Finance guaranteed payment deadline

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Just a reminder that we're very near the 27th May deadline, after which you will not be guaranteed to have your SF in place for the start of the academic year. You do not need to have your application completed by 27th, just submitted.

    You can apply for SF up to nine months after the start of your course - the 27th is *not* a deadline for applications. If you apply after this date, you may or may not have your SF in place and ready for the start of the academic year. The longer you leave it after 27th, the less likely it is that your funding will arrive when you need it.

    The arrival of your SF is also subject to your application proceeding normally. If there is an extended investigation e.g. if your parents' declared income doesn't match their tax records, then this may delay your payments even if you apply before 27th.

    Good luck everyone!
