Hi,

I was just wondering, as I've just made my decisions regarding my firm and insurance choices - I've put the University of Sheffield as my firm, and the University of Edinburgh as my insurance. I've already applied with Student Finance England for my tuition loan, but the thing is, what do I do if I don't get into Sheffield? I won't have the maintenance loan or anything to go to Scotland - so do I still need to apply for SAAS?

I considered applying for SAAS, and then possibly cancelling my application when I get my results in August if I am given a place at Sheffield ... but I wasn't sure if I could do that. Does anyone have any advice?

Do you live in England or Scotland? If you live in England I think you apply through finance England for all loans but if you are scottish then you apply through saas (Scotland)? Although I'm not sure about implications for the two choices in different areas. My daughter applied and accepted her firm/insurance choices both in England but we have to apply to saas(Scotland) for all funding. Hope this helps but if not I'd contact the relate to finance company in your area (Scotland/England) for advice on this.

You can't apply to more then one funding body..

If you live in England/the EU and are studying in the UK you apply to SFE. SAAS is only for Scottish domiciled (or EU students studying here) students applying to universities in the UK.

Erm ... well, I'm currently living in England, and I'm a dual French/British citizen - Edinburgh's given me an EU student fee status (whereas Sheffield hasn't), which is why I was really confused about it (because I knew SAAS is only for Scottish/EU students).

Still, thanks for the info I feel a bit less confused now.
