    What if tuition fee of my course is different from one on the student finance application? I am not able to change it to £9,000 as it says: the amount of tuition fee you've entered is more than the £6,000 your course normally costs.

    If you know the fees are higher than the application will allow you to apply for then contact your university. If they're a private provider it may be that they aren't allowed the loan for £9k and so expect students to find the difference from their own pockets. If they aren't a private provider then they may have just made a mistake sending their course information to SFE.

    If you're asking because you might end up on a different course then you can change your course details in August (a lot of people do) quite simply and if the fees are higher on the changed course your loan should be adjusted upward too.

    When I choose my course title for the first time it says £6k, but when I click to change it and I select the same course it says £9k, but then when I try to save and continue with my application an error occurs on the screen..."sorry something nas gone wrong".

    This only happens in my course with the placement year, without the placement year it works fine because I checked and it allows me to save and continue. In normal 3 years course is £9k, in 4 years(placement year) is £6k. Maybe this is a mistake in the system as university told me that the tuition fee for my course is £9k.

    I don't know if it will automatically adjust from £6k to £9k. This is my firm choice and I am not thinking about changing it later on.
