    Hello,

    I have a question related to the National Insurance Number. I come from Spain and I have not worked in the UK before. I have my Spanish National Insurance number and also the card for European students. Thence, I do not know how to continue with my application since I lack of a UK number. Anyways, the rest of documents required have been already provided and accepted. I would be really glad if you can help me with this issue.

    Thank you very much for your time.

    Regards,

    Hi jessicagar95,

    You can leave the National Insurance section of the application form blank we will still process your application and once your application for Student Finance has been fully assessed and approved, we will send your details to the DWP for validation. A file will be sent to the Job Centre Plus by the DWP, who will contact you to arrange an appointment for a NINO.

    Thanks
