    could anyone possibly help me with this financial information section of the registration?

    My only income will be my student loan and grant, which ive divided up into 8 months, but money from SFE will come in terms, right?

    anyway as for outgoings i put my accomodation cost + food + other bills + travel money and a little extra and added all that up

    Do I also have to factor in the cost of the course?

    Thanks for any help

    I opened mine in branch and wasn't asked any of these.

    I think it usually is easier to visit a branch if you have one local.

    Just split your total income from loans/grants, bursaries, work etc, up into nine monthly amounts. Do the same with your accommodation costs.

    I wasn't aware you could even do this online. As they ask to see your A12 UCAS letter and your SFE letter.

    Good luck anyway..

    Print out your UCAS Confirmation letter and take Photo ID and also proof of address (Utility Bill).

    They're very quick, I was out after 20 minutes and my account was set up after a few days.

    Its just for AML purposes doesn't have to be completely accurate, just to the best of your knowledge. Its to prevent fraud like money laundering and suspicious transactions. So for example if you had unusual amounts of money running through the account it will flag up. Part of the banks KYC checks.
