Each year some students apply late for their finance and end up unable to pay for their course, halls and other important living costs. Don’t let that happen to you!

The deadline to make sure you get your student finance sorted in time for the start of your course is 31 May. If your application is late, your money might be too!

It’s quick and easy to apply online, just go to Student Finance England’s official zone at www.thestudentroom.co.uk/studentfinance

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a confirmed place at university or college, you should still apply now. Just use the details of your preferred course and you can change it once you’ve accepted an offer.

If you’ve started your application but not completed it, log back into your student finance account now and finish it before the deadline.
