I put an application in on Friday (got a last minute place on a course) and now have to send off my evidence (son's birth certicifate, my marriage certificate and proof of child tax credit). I'm hoping it'll be processed before the start of term, but I doubt it 😬

What happens if it isn't processed before the start of term? Does it mean you can't go?

I fortunately have enough in savings that I can cover the cost if finance doesn't come through immediately, but I'm hoping the uni will wait. I'm sure there are plenty of people who get last minute offers through clearing etc who'll be applying late in the year. I imagine Covid must have an impact on the speed at which they process orders!

Exactly, I've heard most uni's don't demand actual payment till the second semester as long as you can prove you have made contact with student finance
