    Hi,

    So i had my funding approved and ready to pay but due to personal circumstances i had to withdraw from the uni i had applied for and move to a different closer university. I had to complete a C0-1 form to change circumstances, which was all good and sorted. Then when i registered for the new Uni the original one sent a notification stating I had already studied with them!?!?!

    This then went to the counter-fraud team as obviously this funding is only open to new Post-grad students and they blocked my payments. Thank fully Greenwich were fantastic and chased this immediately and notified SFE that this was an error. SFE counter-fraud team and PG team both confirmed everything was fine and taken care of. One advisor said it is "just a case of clicking a few buttons to lift my blocks and release my funds" This was two days ago.... Which doesn't sound like a long time until you understand this is three weeks late now and i have literally no money to live on currently.

    Can any one advise how long the CF team or PG team usually take with these "routine" procedures. My tuition needs to be paid and i'm ducking my landlords calls for rent.

    Cheers
