The student finance deadline has passed – you can still apply but you might not get all your money in time for the start of your course.

Follow these three easy steps and we’ll try and make an initial assessment of your application so you’ll have some money as close to the start of your course as possible.

1. Apply now

It’s quick and easy to apply online at

If you’ve already started your application online, log back into your student finance account and finish it as soon as you can.

2. Send us any evidence

If we ask you to send us any evidence to support your application, make sure you send it to us as quickly as possible. Your application isn’t complete and can’t be assessed until we have all the information we need.

3. Print, sign and return your declaration form

We can’t pay you until you do! Before you send it to us, check that you’ve signed your full name and used the current date – not your date of birth. Any mistakes could delay your application.
