    If you apply through UCAS for university course by a January 15 2017, when should you apply for student finance? Is it something you HAVEto include in the UCAS application? Can you apply for student finance after you've sent in the UCAS application, after January 15, 2017?

    Yes - student finance applications usually open around the end of February.

    You will be applying for SF after you apply for uni, but you should apply for SF as soon as you can when applications open. It was the end of February this year, but that was a bit later than usual. Keep your eyes on the SF website from January onwards. You don't need a uni offer or place in order to apply.

    If memory serves (and it may not!) your UCAS application asks how you're planning to fund yourself and you take the option which means SF, but that's as far as it goes at that stage.
