    Nice to see they presume most students have a spare £1700+ lying around...

    No idea why the standard method isn't to just pay upon receiving the loan with an option to pay beforehand. I'll have to pay out of my savings account then, just an inconvenience to most who'll have to email them and defer the payment. Surely that must also be a bit of a disruption to BGP having to sort out all the people who can't pay on the 2nd?

    Did you send in a picture for that Personal Profile card? I had an email about it around 2 months ago about a missing document, but I went to a festival and completely forgot about it, only just remembered now.
    Yeah its just madness really and at first I was planning on going for en suite but I'm glad I didn't now as I'd have had to pay a bigger amount which I couldn't really afford Yeah I agree as I'm pretty sure the majority of students that go to university wouldn't be able to pay that start away before receiving any loan from student finance. Also I haven't sent in a picture yet as I've just not had any time yet, besides we can register online yet so I think we still have some time for it, at I hope we do now

    Hi there!

    I'm in BGP standard too, doing law though, are you paying the first instalment on the 2nd or have you gone about deferring it until the first student loan payment?
    I deferred the first instalment but I put the deposit through the other day...so hopefully it'll arrive and be acknowledged this week, given that they probably closed for the bank holiday

    I've only just sent in the personal profile, by email on Friday. I don't think it's that big a deal though

    Where do we actually have to pay the deposit? How will they know it comes from us exactly?

    The recommended method is via bank transfer, the page with all the account details is HERE

    I assume you can just write in the title for why the money is being transferred, I.E First instalment + deposit.
    And they can track who's paid it in.

    I'm not too sure though, not really used to this sort of stuff :l

    yeah you do bank transfer and there's space for a reference number, put your student id number as the reference number (if you don't know your id, log onto your broadgate park account thing and its on the left)

    Thanks I'm not sure how long they take to go through as with my bank its normally instantaneously plus there's no title that I can see

    I'm with Santander and I've just looked and I can't find any space for a reference number

    I'm with HSBC and the reference number is the second box for me on the payment page, underneath a box asking who it is for.

    Is there anything similar to a reference number for you? You might have to contact UPP if you can't find it.

    The payment page is for both Nottingham and BGP, so I'm guessing the money is to be accredited to UoN and then UPP BGP just take the money from the university as part of the deal?

    As there's no title I assume we just pay the first instalment plus deposit and they can easily figure out that the deposit has been paid as well. Think it has come to £1666.25 altogether. Trying to pay now and get it over with.

    All I have is the payee's name, their sort code and account number and the payment reference too

    I paid the deposit on Friday and got an email receipt today to say they have received it. there should be somewhere if you're online banking for the reference number, if not then go into your branch and ask there.

    Is the payment accredited to Nottingham University and not UPP BGP? As the payments for both seem to be the same, assume it's something to do with the contract they have.

    Also assuming I just pay the combined fee together for both first instalment and deposit, and not separately?

    Okay, so if I were to pay the instalment in a few days time when I get some extra money in then it would be fine to get through to them on the right time and I don't really have any time to go into my branch as I'm working the rest of this week and it'll take longer to transfer if I did go into my branch to sort it all out, I'm sure others have also paid by Santander so it shouldn't be an issue I hope

    What time are people moving into catered halls? I know you can move in from 9 but are people getting there that early. It's my brother's birthday and he goes to Loughborough so parents want to drop me off as early as possible to go and see him after but I don't want to be the only one there looking stupidly eager.

    No-one's going to think you're looking stupidly eager. People will be arriving all through the day, and you will have had time to unpack, open your door, and look welcoming for everyone else who is shyly looking for somebody to talk to. The international students will all have been there since the previous week anyhow so you won't be by yourself.

    No one is going to think you're stupidly eager. I'm not moving into catered halls, but BGP, apparently you can pay £18 pounds and be able to move in on the 21st instead of the 22nd, which I'm seriously considering.

    Rather be in quite early and settled with everything, at least that way you can help anyone that's struggling and you'll be off socialising earlier. As mentioned above the international students arrive a week earlier so you'll hardly be alone.

    I think that sounds fine, as long as it goes through on/before the 2nd sept. Don't leave it too long though because I'm assuming they're not in office on the weekend.

    I called up today to figure it all out and basically they said its okay to send it on Friday as they give everyone a weeks leeway because some misinterpret it as asking for the money on the 2nd when they're actually asking for it all by the 2nd, so yeah I'll send it off as soon as I can
