    Hi

    When you get your student loan in three instalments, what percentage of it do you receive at each instalment? Is a a third each time of weighted different ways?

    Thanks

    You pretty much get a 1/3 each time, and you get it usually the first day of each term in Sept/Oct, Jan and April.

    the last term is the biggest to get you over the summer, except for your last year when your funding ends when you take your exams.

    Oh? So they're not equal amounts?

    If you've applied, they will already have your payment schedule and you should be able to view it.

    How do I do that? I don't think my application had been approved yet though.

    Hmm I believe mine were showing before it was officially approved.

    If you click on your active application, there should be a section titled 'Your payment timetable for Maintenance Loan and Grants' and it should show your payment dates. It might not though, depending on the progress of your application.

    Nothing there now, they must have changed the website

    How long do they usually take to approve applications?

    It depends on the volume they have going through, and I'm guessing they are quite busy at the moment. And there have been 2 bank holidays over the past week as well.

    Your first payment will be due 3 - 4 days after your Uni have confirmed your attendance.
