    I'm applying for student finance for this academic year 2010/2011 but I haven't had any offers from my chosen uni's so far and this year you don't have a first choice. Do you have to wait until you know which uni you're definatly going to, to apply?

    I'm really confused

    Orrr, do you put what you believe is your first choice and if you don't get in, ring them and they change the university details?

    Please helpp! :/
    Wait til you know what your firm is. Last year it was a big hassle to get them to change details with the change of circumstances forms, it took some people aaages!

    Hey,

    So my Student Finance has been sitting as "Approved" for two weeks now, but there are still no payment listed, and no schedule has been posted. Anyone know if this this normal?

    I tried phoning SFE last week, and the only answer was that "It should get sent out soon".
    Very normal. You'll get a provisional notice soon shortly and then a final notification just before you go to Uni.

    The first bit... I'd say put it down as full time undergraduate, and if you do get a work placement you can inform them when it comes to that time (in a year or two's time).

    And, in general, full time courses can be put down as ending in June of the final year. (Newcastle University Term Dates)

    Don't forget to apply for your next year's funding. You can do it now. More time for SFE to mess up ready for Sept.

    Does anyone know how long they're taking to work through the applications queue (for this year) at the moment? I applied for the current year's funding as soon as applications opened last Spring, and after constant muck-ups with my financial evidence, I sent them the correct forms again about a week ago... But I was just wondering how long it's likely to take from now?

    I've got a question, I've got an offer from Emmanuel College Cambridge, but wondered whether you use the college or the university address for a 2010/2011 application? Thanks!

    I sent off my continuing students form for academic year 2010 - 2011 by recorded delivery and according to royal mail it arrived at the darlington office which is where I posted it. However I remember last year I sent off forms by recorded delivery and they were redirected by darlington to Glasgow, is that not happening this year?? How long do they take to process forms?? Thanks
