    Are you sure you never got one? If you have worked then you will have had to provide it and it should be on payslips.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm currently in the process of applying to universities in the UK for a postgraduate degree. I've just submitted my application for a postgraduate student loan to student finance and now I'm asked to quote the National Insurance number on my student finance application. Here's my situation- I'm an EU citizen (Cypriot, to be precise) and I've never worked or lived in the UK, therefore I've never applied for a NI number.

    My question is- is it necessary to apply by contacting the National Insurance number application line in order to complete my application or is it possible to apply for one once I enter the UK? Will the latter jeopardise my application for a student loan?

    Any information regarding my request is fully appreciated.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
    PM me your NI number along with your bank details (name, number sort code etc) and I'll have a look for you.
