Im trying to build up an idea of how much the SFE are sticking to the promises they have made to thousands of students.

I applied for finance late (by 1 week), which I can't blame the SFE authority for.

Having said that, I only recieved my standard loan amount last week. So they were way off their estimated deadline for supporting students.

I have also realised from what SFE are stating - that I should have also been income assessed and should have recieved this amount already - which I have not.

What are your experiences / dates of applying for and recieving support?

I applied in time, got my interim loan part less than a week after freshers week. Now I'm on week 4 of the course.
Grant should come through (or be sent) tomorrow, its an interim grant apparently (actually its full grant but loan isn't full yet) according to SFE.
