Probably not, as they would only want to pay into an account in the name of the person who is entitled to the finance.

The bank account must be in the name of the person who has applied for SF. It's an anti-fraud measure.

You have a few weeks yet to open a student bank account in your own name, then update your Student Finance details. There should be time to sort it out if you act now.

I think in your place I'd phone Student Finance and ask their advice on what to do. It's going to be obvious that you're not trying to comit fraud.
