    HiI'm waiting to hear a response from student finance (been 2 weeks since I sent the form) but I'm in the process of completing the registration forms for Greenwich University.
    If student finance says no for whatever reason, would I be allowed to leave the uni without paying a fee? Or will they insist that I pay for the first year?

    Most unis have some sort of grace period before you start owing tuition fees, but each can set their own. It may be as little as a few days after the course's start date, or a couple of weeks. Greenwich will have their small print online somewhere so you should be able to look it up. After that, there's a tuition fee liability, with an amount which increases the longer you stay at uni.

    Is there a real risk that SF will turn you down? The only reasons for being refused are pretty obvious e.g. you don't meet the residence criteria, you have done too much uni-level study before or you already have an equivalent or lower qualification. None of these should come as a surprise. It isn't credit checked, so that won't be a factor.

    I was just curious because I have applied for student finance not too long ago and Uni is starting soon. I was worried about what would happen if something were to go wrong.

    I checked it now and it says on the Greenwich website that you have about 6 weeks before they start asking you for the fees if you're waiting for student finance. Thanks for the help
