    You don't need your card number. You need your bank account number and your bank sort code.

    As long as bank details are in the system no less than a fortnight before your first installment is due, you should be fine. However, the sooner the better. If you already have your account, you can do it now.*

    Plus 26th September is just the earliest date on which SF will release your money. When you actually get paid will depend on when you enrol on campus, which is up to the uni. Once you enrol, they confirm your attendance to SF and then they send the money to your bank. Uni accommodation will normally be sympathetic to delays caused by the SF process.*

    No deadline for updating bank details. As long as it's updated before the payment.

    Once you put the bank details in, it usually updates within a few hours on the system and changes the 'blocked' payments to 'approved'
