    I applied for the postgraduate student loan a few weeks ago, got no letter stating what evidence needed to be sent so I rang student finance and they told me to send my passport and declaration form. So I have done that but now Im after realising I was suppose to send a document form for my passport to come back safely, but I have sent it without it. Is this going to delay the process even further? And should I be worried? I did include a note with my passport stating my address and crn number on it. Please get back to me someone.

    Hi Karendwyer92

    As long as we have your details with the passport, we will be able to add it to your account and return it safely. Please allow up to 4-6 weeks processing and it will then be returned by special delivery.Thanks

    It takes 4 to 6 weeks to return the passport? I was told I'd have it back after a few working days, I will need it to fly over to the UK as my course starts in about 4/5weeks. Also I have no national insurance number yet, how do I go about getting one once I arrive in the UK?

    Hi Karendwyer92

    Yes, up to 4-6 weeks. It may be assessed a lot quicker than this, but we advise not to send it if you will need it. If you are applying as an EU student you do not need an NI number. If you are UK national, once your application is approved we start the process for you to get one and the DWP will contact you to arrange an appointment for one.

    Thanks
