    For Student Finance I put down my firm university. However, I didn't get in and got into my insurance. Do I need change my university on student finance or not because the money goes to me and not the university? I would just change it anyway but it say it can take between 2 days and 6 weeks and as my university course starts in 2 weeks I don't want to risk doing it.

    Thanks if you can help!

    Yes - change it online ASAP.

    6 weeks is if your application needs serious reassessment - if you don't update it then you wont get any money! Your university has to confirm to the SLC that you've arrived on your course - they can't do that if you are down to attend a different university on the SLC records.
