    Hi all,
    So I've ended up going to a university that I applied to through clearing, so obviously I needed to change my information on my student finance account. All I did was change the university I'm going to. However, my new university is in London, which means I'm now eligible for a higher maintenance loan than I was originally offered. Will just changing the university guarantee that I get the higher loan due to living in London? Or is there something else I have to do?
    Also I never received an email or anything saying things have been changed on my account, despite it being changed on the website, so is there any way to find out whether it was processed?
    Thanks so much!

    Yes, you can phone Student Finance and they will check what's going on with your revised application.

    AS long as your address is in london then you will automatically get the london rate - you don't need to apply for it as it's just automatic

    hope this helps

    cheers
