    Hello Everyone,
    Next september I am planning to study at the University of Bristol and for this reason I need to apply for a student loan to get my tuition fees paid.
    I readon the Student finance facebook page that It is required to open a English bank account. I was wondering whether It should be opened before applying or when I definetely settle in the UK ?

    Hi Sergio97

    If you are applying as a UK home student, you will require a UK bank account. Providing it is set up and we have the details before any payments are due to be released this is ok.
    If you are applying as an EU student for tuition fee loan only, we do not require bank details as no payments are made to you.

    Thanks

    I would love to thank you for your reply. I read that EU applicants cannot apply online. Unfortunately I had already set an online account. On this account there is also a mistake as It says that my country of nationality is the Uk instead of Italy. What do I have to do?
