    I've been trying to log in to my Student Finance account for weeks and each time I log in I am met with a message saying "Sorry, something has gone wrong" and underneath:

    "An unknown error has caused the application to stop working.Try and log into your account later and resume your application.If you continue to see this message, contact Student Finance England."

    I have deleted my cache and cookies, changed browsers, changed computers and tried to log in from different locations. I called them yesterday three times and each of them were able to access my account. They suggested I reset my login details and this should help, but after doing so I had no such luck. I very much need to login and change some details as I have decided to move out and require a bigger loan.

    Has anyone else had a similar issue and if so have you been able to fix it?


    Hey Tweddled

    I have received a email from the IT department they said the following
