    Well i am just about to apply for second year Funding from student finance. I did my previous application online and the turn out was quite a hassle (with documents not recieved, etc). So i was wondering, which of the two is best recommended way of applying : - Paper application or Online application?
    Thank you.

    I've done mine. This year the paper application in support ie parents is a lot simpler, no evidence required to be sent.

    So what you mean is - If i do the application on paper, i dont have to send additional (evidence based) application from parents?

    Generally having done both, the online is certainly quicker, easier and safer (as in they can't 'lose' your application) IF you are pretty standard and have no special requirements.

    No I mean your parents need to fill in a paper form each but they don't need to send P60s in. This of course only applies to 2nd and 3rd year funding.

    Another question regarding student finance 2nd year application - for putting in the Fee's detail, will it be the same as last year (ie - £3225?) or do i have to put the new value (which has now increased to £3795)? The latter i think applies to prospective students but i just wanted to make sure if that is right. Thank you

    You're wrong on both counts!
    You have to put this year's fees which are £3290.
    No university can charge you more than this if you are a home/EU student.
