    I'm a bit confused, because I've read so many different things.

    On the Student Finance website, in the Payment Schedule, it's saying that I'm scheduled to be paid today, and this is the date I've given to the future landlord as being able to put down the first months rent. However, I've also read on here that it's paid 3 days after enrollment, whereas my enrollment is on the 19th.

    Is there something I'm missing?

    I've managed to defer the first months rent payment, so this isn't *as* urgent anymore, but am still interested to know.

    You wont be paid until you have physically turned up at uni and enrolled - this happens usually during freshers week

    Ok thanks for clarifying that. It's so confusing how SFE don't advise you of this...

    Agree with AmyPilot.

    The date SF gave you, is just the earliest possible date that they *could* pay you - not the date on which they *will* pay you. They want the uni to confirm that you have physically turned up for the start of the year, which you prove by enrolling on campus just before your course starts. It's a process which tries to minimise fraud by people who apply for SF but then just pocket the money and never show up. At least with on campus enrolment, all applicants have been seen and had their ID checked in person. It isn't foolproof, but it's the best there is at the moment.

    It's a shame that SF don't make this clearer in their correspondence.
