    Apply now with your best guess about which course/uni you'll go to.

    It's quicker to change uni later on and less likely to cause a problem/delay in getting paid.

    You have missed the deadline for "on time" payment though so you might end up without a loan payment for the first term - so get your application in ASAP and prepare to pay your way for the first few months from other sources until your loans come through.
