    Hello guys. I have applied for student finance for this year, starting in october and basically im from a poor family lol so I am entitled to a maintenance grant of £3000 or something around that figure.

    On my Payments page it only displays the following. Can anyone tell me should I phone them and ask them about the maintenance money? Or give it a little while longer to see if it appears on my Payments page.

    Doesn't look as though you have any grant at all. It should show as such. Phone them

    Grant as in maintenance loan money? Because apporoved means - student finance have all the evidence they need and the money will be paid into your bank account on the date specified.

    So are you talking bout just the maintenance loan? If so I will ring them.

    Hey, im the same with the grant, but its coming up on my form, so it looks like they haven't actually assessed/approved that part for you yet. I'd ring them up just to be sure.

    Depends on what evidence they require. Took my brother about 2 weeks to get his from start to finish.

    I called them a couple of days ago to ask about the evidence part. I'm going to get the NHS bursary and they ask about what proof I'll have for this. I rang because I don't know when I'll even be able to apply for the bursary so can't provide any proof now. They told me I won't need evidence so just select the 'I cannot provide any' option. I did this but every time I log in again it's as if I never selected anything for the evidence. I don't know if the application will go through if it keeps doing this. DO you think it'll cause problems?

    What course are you on/applying for? As a student nurse I'm only entitled to the TFL and basic ML. I have to apply for the NHS bursary separately. The SLC wanted proof of my NHS bursary (which I haven't applied for). My prospective uni said to send in my offer letter which shows Im on an NHS funded course. In the meantime the SLC approved my ML.

    I'm starting diagnostic radiography in Sept. I'm not entitled to the tuition fee loan as the NHS pay it so I'm only getting the maintenance loan. I have to wait to be contacted by the NHS bursary people to apply for it so can't provide the evidence until then. The only options there for me to select are 'I cannot provide any of the items in the list above' or 'result of NHS bursary application'.

    When I put I cannot supply anything this comes up;

    We are not waiting on any evidence items.

    Please note, you have stated you cannot provide any of the evidence items required to prove your NHS Bursary. Not supplying any of the listed items may cause a delay to your application, please use the link below to specify evidence you will return.
    I want to change the items I am providing
    We have received...

    your UK Passport Details on 05/04/2011


    Then when I next log in it's back to having no tick next to that section, as if I haven't selected anything. It's very frustrating.

    My application went through after it got to your stage. It just updated after about 3 days. Have you firmed yet? My approval seemed to coincide with that. My prospective uni said to send in the offer letter that they sent me if the SLC needed proof.

    Yep, I said yes to my only choice a couple of weeks ago. So should I just leave it as it is? Thank you for your help by the way

    Well you have plenty of time. Check the "View correspondence" section to see if they've written to you. If things don't change in the next week, give them a ring.

    also, on the bit where it says,

    Do you have to attend a place in the UK away from your main college as part of your medical or dental clinical training in this academic year or do you have to go abroad for the majority of any term as part of your course?

    do nursing students say yes or no?

    haha you're my saviour i can't find info anywhere!
