However there is still a risk that you won't get funding through at the start of term if you missed the guaranteed deadline for applying (end May for English applicants). So make sure you have plans in place to cover your costs for the first term - an interest free overdraft etc for short term borrowing until your finance comes through.

It regards to receiving a quote about how they'd give me, that didn't take very long at all but then again, all my information and evidence went through first time so I probably had it within like 4 weeks, if not less. It all depends on your evidence and how fast it goes through and how quickly they can work it out depending on your situation.
In regards to receiving the money from them, no one receives student finance money until you have 'enrolled' at your university. Once you've enrolled at your university they confirm with student finance that you are actually attending and then it comes through not long after. The dates on the plan they give you are pretty accurate, at least they have been for me. OH! also it depends on your back and how quickly money is processed once deposited.
