Where is this form? (postgraduate)

I switched my master's course at the beginning of the year and SFE have sent a letter asking for information about the new course (see attached).

It says to download a copy of a form www.gov.uk/postgraduateloan. This URL redirects to www.gov.uk/funding-for-postgraduate-study and I can't see any forms.

Anyone else here had the same letter and figured out what to do? Or please could SFE help out?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Is it the Change of Circumstances form you've been asked to complete, or a brand new application?

Thanks, Graeme

Hi Graeme, thanks for your reply! I really don't know to be honest. Here's the full letter - can you tell from this?

(By the way, I did already get the first payment installment - it came through in September as scheduled, before the course switch happened. I just got this letter a couple of weeks ago, immediately once the switch was processed by SFE).

(I called them - turns out my application was flagged by mistake and there's not actually anything I need to do. Oh well!)

Updating in case someone is in a similar situation in future. Link to the form they wanted is here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/media/635be447e90e070bc1bcf7f2/sfe_pgl_application_form_2223_o.pdf

My payments never were unblocked, so I called again and turns out I do have to resubmit the application myself - was flagged by my univerisity so can't be fixed on SFE's end. Have to fill it out on paper and post to SFE (not freepost :frown: )
