Do I apply for student finance from wales or england?

Hi! I am a EU National with a Pre-Settled status. I have lived in England for 3+ years before my course. I have firmed Cardiff University and Insured a University in England. I created an account in Student Finance England and followed the instructions until the paper application c.6.2. if I tick Yes, It sends me to Student Finance Wales, however when I sign in, it sends me back to Student Finance England. I am a bit confused as to what to do? Do i cancel my application from Student Finance England? What if I don't get accepted to Cardiff University? Will I have to apply for Student Finance England again if I will attend a University in England?

Hi There,

If you’re living in England before the start of the course and you have pre-settled status then you’d need to apply to Student Finance England as an EU student. You’ll need to apply on paper as you won’t be able to do this online; you can find the form you’ll need for this here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1060249/eu_eu22n_form_2223_o.pdf

Thanks, Erin N
Hi Erin! I did try that however I'm a bit confused since I'll be studying in Wales. (Attached below) The paper application is forwarding me to Student Finance Wales and I cannot log into Student Finance Wales as it keeps logging me to Student Finance England. (Perhaps cause we can have only one student finance account?)
Also, if I do apply for student finance Wales, and get rejected from Cardiff University. Will I have to apply to student finance England for my insurance university in England after results?!

Hello,

You can't apply online. You need to complete the form Erin provided.

Thanks, Lynsey.
