    Does anyone have a rough idea now of when entitlement is and if this is when we will receive timetables? I need to apply for childcare but not really sure what days/hours I will need to add on! My daughter will be in nursery and will have 15 hours already free but I will need to put her in for a few extra hours.. can I still fill the forms all in before I know exact amount of hours she will be doing?

    Contact your uni and ask how many days you’ll be in. I asked when I was at my open day and I know that I’ll be in uni for 3 days a week.
    I’ll be applying for childcare for those 3 full days (well 3 days of breakfast and after school club because my children are older) and then adjusting it if I need to later.

    Yes, you fill it in with an estimate, and you get paid with your first lot of student finance for that amount. Then, once you have started, you fill in another form with the actual hours and the following payment (January) is adjusted accordingly... any overpayment will be taken off then xx

    That’s great thanks, when is the first payment usually? Is the childcare element all paid at the same time as any maintenance loan etc?
