    I have not yet applied for any university courses for this year but have recently changed my mind and decided I want to go. I am going to wait until results day and apply for a place through clearing. Obviously I also have not applied for any student finance and the website says that the deadline was in May. I was wondering if anyone could help me with a few questions as I am a bit worried.

    -Have I left it too late to apply for finance?
    -If I applied now, or within the next few days, when would the money come through?
    -Can I apply even though I don't have any course offers?
    -Would it be better to apply ASAP rather than on results day?

    Thanks so much if anyone can help me!

    IHave I left it too late to apply for finance?
    No, you can apply up to 9 months after your course starts.

    -If I applied now, or within the next few days, when would the money come through?
    No way of knowing. The deadline for applications which guaranteed your money reaching you at the start of the course was 31st May, so you've missed that by a long way. It's now probably a safe bet that SF money would reach you well after your course had started,so you'll need to have enough of your own money to support yourself (rent, food, travel etc), possibly for a few weeks or a couple of months.

    -Can I apply even though I don't have any course offers?
    Yes, that's normal.

    -Would it be better to apply ASAP rather than on results day?
    Absolutely. The longer you leave it, the later your money will arrive.

    I applied for Student Finance after the deadline (31st May) and it was all sorted within 4 weeks and all my payments have been scheduled.

    You'll have no problem.
