    I'm an Irish Postgrad student studying in Bristol, in the process of applying for a loan. I called the job centre about getting a National Insurance Number, and they said that they couldn't provide one just for a loan, and that student finance will sort it out. I've since received a request for my National Insurance Number from student finance (Which i don't have). Do I need to sort it out myself, or will I get one From student finance?

    Hi ereddin11,

    As an EU student, you do not need provide us with a National Insurance number.

    You can be confident this will not affect the progress of your Postgraduate Loan or your payments.

    We are aware that letters being issued to EU students advise that until they provide a valid National Insurance number we will be unable to pay them any of their PGL. This is incorrect and currently looking into having these letter corrected.

    Thanks Rona
