    They haven't asked me to send them anything as of yet.

    Its overly confusing, maybe i have to complete everything on my behalf before my mum does anything

    I found it, Basically go over


    Your student finance application

    Indicate below the types of financial support you will be applying for

    Note: If you have applied for financial support taking into account your household income you will be automatically assessed for a Maintenance Grant.If you wish to receive only the Maintenance grant, answer ‘no’ to both 'Type of financial support' questions.

    Information on Bursary Consent:

    In order for your university or college to determine and pay any bursary and/or scholarships to which you may be entitled, Student Finance England can share some of the information that you have given on this form, as well as information in relation to your assessment for student finance, with your university or college.
    Your decision about consent will not affect your entitlement to any other financial support available.

    If you do not consent to Student Finance England sharing this information with your university or college you must answer ‘no’ to the question below.
    Type of financial support

    Do you want to apply for a Maintenance Loan to cover your living costs while you are studying?
    Yes
    No
    Show help
    Students are entitled to a Maintenance Loan to help with living costs. The amount that is available depends on the student’s circumstances.


    Do you wish to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan to cover your course fees? A loan for tuition fees is to help you cover any tuition fee costs that you are unable to meet. This amount will be paid to your university or college.
    Yes
    No
    Show help
    Students can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan to cover their tuition fee costs. The Student Loans Company (SLC) will pay the Tuition Fee Loan amount you are eligible for directly to the college or university on your behalf. If your Tuition Fee Loan entitlement amount does not cover the full cost of your tuition fees, you must pay the remaining amount to your college or university.

    Give consent to share your information

    Your university or college may be offering financial awards such as bursaries or scholarships to its students. Do you consent to your information being shared with your university or college specifically for bursary administration purposes?

    Information about data sharing for bursary and scholarship purposes


    Universities and colleges offer financial awards such as bursaries or scholarships to their students. To help them administer these awards (i.e. to determine eligibility and entitlement to, and if relevant pay, a bursary or scholarship - "bursary administration purposes") they will ask the Secretary of State, your local authority or Student Loans Company for access to information you provide in connection with this application for student finance (whether on this form or at a later date).

    Student Finance England will share the relevant information with them, unless you indicate that you do not wish them to do so by ticking the box on the declaration. If you do not give consent for Student Finance England to share this information, the payment of any bursary or scholarship to which you may be entitled will be delayed.

    No i'm having difficulties. What loans have you applied for?

    I want maintenance loan
    tuition fee loan
    and maintenance grant
    But for some reason i don't know how to apply for the grant?

    I want to double check that my application is all good before submitting it. For some reason my mother cannot continue her application without putting her national insurance in her 'edit profile' section, however it wont allow her to put it, she types it in and it says 'this NI number is already of an existing account' ? so confusing

    Existing account? have you applied before for yourself or a sibling maybe? I would phone up SF tomorrow and get it sorted they were quite quick to deal with my inquiry.

    I applied for maintenance loan, tuition fee loan and the grant I just applied to them all hah I think it was on the same page[in the box] as "if you want this to include household income or not include it" bit there's a little bar you can move to display the loan.

    This is the first time i and my mother have done this, there should be no existing account unless, when i set up my account i set my mothers up separately. However as i was going through my application it says 'your family' i answered the questions regarding my mother and at the end it said my mum had been successfully registered and that she should check her email to support my application and she went to her email and the number code given was the same as the one she set up with. So i really don't know, but yes i will call them 2mo and see what they can do. Hopefully they can guide us through the whole thing

    Lol i want the main grant, main loan but i don't see the point of the tuition fee loan because you have to pay it back anyway, i don't see the point it. Basically the finance company whatever they are called pay the university what you owe them, however at then end of your degree you pay the company back not the university, so why do you just pay back the university to begin with whats the point of the loan?

    If you have the money up front to pay the university which is £3375 or something then it's great cos you don't need to take out a loan and the maintenance grant and loan is enough for you but I can't really afford to pay the university 3k yet as I don't have the money and I do not work so I need to take out a loan, I think the interest rate for undergraduate is standing at 1.5% but will increase significantly only the new reform takes place for next year, all the more reason why I NEED to get into University this year!! I was looking at the news again and apparently new graduates next year will be paying back around £78,000 in total when they finish uni with an average debt of £43,000. God i would hate to be owing so much money when graduate.

    So wait if we apply this year, we wont have interest added on?

    Oh then i guess i need the tuition fee loan. ¬_¬
    I've concluded that im going to do what i need to do online and let my mother do it with the paper forms. However i can't work out how my mother supports my application if she does it with the forms and i do it online. :confused:

    Oh yeah me too i would hate to be in all the debt, from the student finance how much were you entitled to?

    Yeah definitely submit your application before the deadline my mates had loads of trouble with them last year so I'm starting early this year and hopefully complete all this stuff so I can focus on my revision. The university(KCL,City and Greenwich) is all based in London which makes it easier for SF to deal with it because they all have the same grant and stuff so when i get my results all i need to do is confirm which one i want to go to, so atm it's like i can put anyone down really so i can move on with my profile.
