Opening a bank account for maintenance loan

Can I get my maintenance loan paid into some else bank account as I do not have a bank account of my own

No that’s not permitted.

You should be able to open your own bank account though. It’s not difficult

Have you been into a branch of somewhere like nationwide and asked to open a basic bank account?
@Mgurskyte, I have moved your thread from the Community Awards 2023 forum to the Student Financial Support forum. I've also renamed your thread to 'opening a bank account for maintenance loan'.

I'm willing to bet you've put very little effort into opening an account.

It’s worth noting that the OP likely has a CIFAS marker.

In which case OP needs to find out whether the cifas marker is genuine (and can be appealed) or look into taking out a managed account

Just repeatedly opening accounts that then get closed without addressing the underlying issue isn’t going to help.

SFE will not pay student loans into someone else’s bank account.
