    You need to give them a call and give them your NI number really and then make sure your bank details are added at least a week before your payment is due.

    You can update your bank details over the phone so no form is needed

    You can't give them your national insurance number over the phone - I can't remember what the exact procedure is for getting it put on your account - I'll check and update this post tomorrow *

    You have up to nine months after the start of your course, to send your NI number and complete your application. The bad news is that you won't get any Student Finance until they have your NI number. So there's no immediately looming deadline as such, but if you want your Maintenance Loan and your tuition fees paid, you need to get a wiggle on.

    The bank details need to be in the system a week or two before your first installment date (which will be in your SF documents). Without those, your Maintenance Loan will be put on hold.

    You need to log back into your Student Finance application. There is a section in that where you were asked for your bank account details. If that is blank where you skipped it at the time, or the details are no longer current, you can add/update them. If you run into problems, call SF and they can help sort it out.

    You do not need to delay. In fact you should do that as soon as possible.*
