    Towards the start of this year I applied for Student Finance with SFE and received a letter back saying I was entitled to the full amount for a maintenance loan for living in London and the tuition loan of £9000. All sorted.

    Unfortunately, after receiving my results I had to go through clearing and will now be studying undergraduate Biochemistry at Swansea University in the year 2016/17 instead. I have sent a form to SFE explaining my change of university as I know the maintenance loan will now be less as I won't be living in London anymore.

    I was wondering if you could advise me on when my maintenance loan is paid into my account as I have an accommodation deposit to pay in the next 7 days and an accommodation instalment to pay by the end of October. As you can understand I want to ensure that my loan is received by the time I need to make this payment.

    After all, this is the exact reason I applied for Student Finance; so that I had funding available for my accommodation costs.

    Hi Ashleigh,

    We require the university to confirm your registration once the course starts in order for us to release payments. Once we submit the payment it is in your account approximately 3/5 working days after this.

Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
