I submitted my application on March at I have my BRP Settlement status. Which I sent it to student finance by post and got it back. There is an home office check being done. So far it’s been12 working days since the home office check was raised. And still there haven’t been any updates.
I want to say If I am eligible for home university fees. Being a home student. Then I should be eligible for student finance as this is just wasting my time. As I also want to get an update on my application being starting university in 2 weeks.

Cheers

The rules for home fees and student finance are different. Eligibility for home fees doesn’t automatically indicate eligibility for student support.

Unfortunately Student finance is not the home office, so any delays lay with the HO.

Mate unfortunately STUDENT FINANCE In July sent my Home office check to the wrong department and no one had a looked at it and let me know. So 2weeks later I rang student finance and found that out. So Unfortunately Student Finance could have avoided the 2/3 weeks delay.

Yep, I totally understand that but if u were in my place u would be annoyed as first student finance send the home office check to the wrong department making me wait for 2/3week only to find out it has been sent to the wrong department. Secondly another home office check was sent which the student finance can’t provide an update about. Thirdly another home office check is sent and i am still waiting for this. As seen the outcome from last to “home office check” were not understandable. And confusing and messed responsibility from Student finance.
And if a student has got there settlement status what is the need for the check. As it is just a waste of time. Already wasted my last 1 month on home office check.

Hi,
I am currently in the same situation, could you please let me know if you have received Student Finance and how long the Home Office took altogether (for them to get back to you).
Thank you.
