    I start uni in September and I assumed that the first payment of student loan/grant would come through on the first day of uni but I heard someone say they came through at the end of September? Is that right? I'll have no money at all until that comes through so I hope it comes through before that or I'll have no money for freshers :/

    There is't a set date for everyone, as it depends when your uni holds enrollment and how fast they are at processing that. It will come through sometime after you have formally enrolled, which is normally during Induction Week. The uni have to confirm the Student Finance that you have enrolled, then SF will release the money into your bank account, It can take days or even a week or two after enrollment before you get your money. You'll need to bring at least enough to live on for your first couple of weeks, just in case.

    It usually comes through 3-5 working days after you register at the university, so you need at least a couple of weeks worth of money for living costs so you don't run out. You can get an interest free overdraft with a student account which might help.
