I have started Uni on 2nd of October 2023. I ve applied for student finance and all approved. Now my online SFE account says that they are waiting for my uni confirmation of registration ( which has been done weeks ago and I also attended my first classes).
I have emailed uni and asked for a confirmation of my registration being sent to SFE and their answer is that it takes longer because I am a partner student and I need to prove my attendance ( I study in one of their partners campuses in Oxford).
My question is, is this normal to have to wait until my uni confirms my attendance ? In my first year ( foundation year) I had to wait 3 months until I got paid. So I was only paid in January.
I think this is not right, I am paying the same amount of tuition fees like any other student, why do I need to wait for so long and I don't even know when I'm going to be paid?
P.S. sorry for my long enquiry
