Hello, I am struggling with applying for Student Finance England. I wanted to get a student account with a bank, however, the age I need to be is 18 to apply for that. But I'm 17, and will be turning 18 in July. And the deadline for sfe is May 31st I believe. Therefore I won't be able to get the student account until the summer holidays.

I have a 'young person's account' which is for under 18s. I was wondering if I should just put this account's details on sfe or leave it blank, so when I do get the student bank account, I can add that?

What do I do? please advise me. Thank you.

You can either put your account details for your current account (if you stay with the same bank then they’ll usually just make that account a student account instead of changing your account number) or you can apply for finance without giving any bank account details and just update it in the summer

Thank you! I've decided on leaving it blank then add it when I get a student account after my birthday.
