Southampton are expecting my tuition fees by 02/10/2009, but student finance arent going to give me the money until 03/02/2010 and 05/05/2010. However, the payee is the University of Southampton, and the method is direct credit, so I was assuming that they pay the tuition fees directly into my account, and then Southampton take it out. This is what is happening with my Maintenance loan, Student finance are paying me a few days before Southampton take it out for accommodation.

Does this mean I've got to front the full £3225 by the second of october of this year? And then presumably student finance will give me the tuition fees loan over the course of next year?

Im really confused.

If you took out a Tuition Fee Loan it is paid directly to the university by Student Finance

The Maintenance loan is paid to you. You then spend it on what you want (food, nights out, accommodation etc).

Yeh thats what I though. But then why on my finance page on the Southampton internet portal, does it say that the due date for my tuition fees is the second october?

Perhaps SF haven't let the uni know how much of the tuition fee they are paying. Might be worth giving everyone a ring to find out. Especially the uni.

It'll be fine. Student finance will pay it to the university, you don't need to worry about it. If you're really bothered ring the uni and let them know that SF will pay it the next day.

Don't worry, it's what all universities say. They want them paid by 2nd of October unless you can provide proof of sponsor before then, i.e. financial notification and payment schedule letter from the Student Loans Company. So you provide these documents on registering, and then the tuition fee loan goes directly into the University's bank account in two installments: February 2010 and April 2010.

Ah, that makes sense. So as long as I show them them proof that I actually have funding by the 2nd October, then they'll collect the money from Student Finance on the allotted dies. Good good.
