I have been approved for a loan/grant for my 2nd year of UG studies in London.
The letter I received shows that SFE will pay out the financial support in 3 payments (Oct, Jan, Apr) as is standard.
However, is there any way to convince SFE to pay out a larger sum of the money in the first payment? I ask because I need to pay 6 months rent at the start of October as one of my co-tenants does not have a UK rent guarantor so we all have to pay rent in blocks of 6 months. As you can imagine, this is a substantial amount of money. My loan and other income is able to support the rent and my living costs, but only if i receive the money at the right time.
Receiving a larger sum of the money in the first payment would mean I wouldn't have to use my overdraft and borrow off family and friends to cover rent. As it is, I tend to have money left over from the last payment in Apr as my spending is much reduced during those months.
Is this possible?
Will SFE adjust their payout schedule?
