    It would seem I come across a problem or something I've failed to do every five minutes But basically I've applied for a diagnostic radiography course with Sheffield hallam as my firm and Bangor (Wrexham campus) as my reserve. Part of me is starting to think that because of how little I'm getting as far as a maintenance loan goes; should I apply for student finance wales if I think I may take my reserve? Another thing, do people usually apply for accommodation for both their firm and reserve choice?
    All replies are greatly appreciated!

    If you live in Englad at the moment, then you apply to Student Finance England wherever you end up. Even Bangor.

    At my current uni, you can only apply for accommodation once you have firmed your place.

    Okay thanks for the reply! On the student finance website I said it was Sheffield Hallam I would be studying at should this not make a difference if I do end up in Bangor?

    You do not apply for SF based on where you study, it's based on where you live. If you live in England then you use SF England who covers all of the UK.

    Wales gives more generous grants than any other government but this is for Welsh students only.

    You just tell SFE that you're not going to your first choice and they redirect the Tuition Fee Loan to the uni you eventually attend.

    Plenty of people end up at unis which weren't their first choice. Many go through Clearing, and end up at a uni they'd never even considered before that week. SFE are used to changes to the uni on your application.

    I assume you've applied for an NHS bursary as well?
