Hello all,

Given all of the recent problems with contacting Student Finance England, I thought it would help if I share an alternative, geographic telephone number for Student Finance England. Unlike numbers that have previously been posted in this forum, this number will go through directly to the assessments team. Hopefully this will help those of you still waiting for your finance applications to be fully processed.

The number is 01325 21 52 08, and it's available from 9am until 5pm, Monday to Friday.

I did say.. but again my posts are deleted...

I have the correct number but I'm not giving it.

Also I called them and it's the LEA help line/assesment team... not the main one for student finance

The above is merely the senior structure, you'll have team managers in between.

I just used 0141 306 2000 and was through pretty much instantly. That's the alternative to the official 0845 number.

Why post that you have it then? We're not really that bothered, go and play with the telephone for a bit.

no it is not

it is the number to their head office in glasgow and is on the www.slc.co.uk website


I have alerted student finance of this number being publicly available (01325 21 52 08)
and they said that's not one of our numbers [for applications 08/09] it is a number for people whos applications are being processed by their LA

I have also alerted them of this
[email protected]
01325 215632
07827 449302

and they will be addressing the issue shortly.


kthx

Well that's what the saynoto0870 site gave me and I got through to someone who could help me with my application so it was fine for me.

The fact their advice was useless is beyond the point...:rolleyes:

Yeah that definitely isn't the right number. I phoned it earlier and she seemed quite annoyed that I had phoned her! Understandable if that is her direct phone number though.

Ummm... fail? :facepalm:

Seriously, it's not helpful people posting details of individuals; whether they're managers or not. Simply because they'll forward calls/correspondence into the queue. You won't get anywhere causing them more work.
