Going to uni or college this year? You should apply for your student finance now. You can apply in three easy steps:

1. Find out what you can get

To find out what student finance you can get, visit our dedicated student finance zone on The Student Room.

2. Register online

It’s quick and easy to apply online at www.gov.uk/studentfinance

3. Fill in your application

You don’t need a confirmed place at uni or college. Apply using your preferred choice of course and simply change the details online later if you need to.

Make sure you apply as soon as possible. If your application is late, your money might be too.

Continuing students

If you’re continuing a course in 2017/18, we’ll email you when it’s time to re-apply.
