Sorry if this is in the wrong place but didn't know where else to put it

I just got an offer from my first choice and I'm over the moon! But I noticed on the 'conditions' bit, Goldsmiths have added this:

"Early application for government student support advised"

Does anyone know exactly what that means? I've not seen anyone else with that. All I can think of is that they must mean students loans, but why would they tell me to apply early?

It sounds like they require you to submitted your student loan applications in early before the academic year starts (Sept 2009). Applications for student loans will be available in Mid Feb from the Student Loan Company.

Hope this helps

I wonder if it's just that your particular course requires you to pay straight away, or something Seems very odd!

I was intending to apply for loans pretty early anyway, but I don't understand why they're advising me to... maybe I should ring them tomorrow to ask?

Yeah I read on the website that most people do it completely online now, don't even need to send off passport details from this year, just need to type them in Handy!

Umm well I'm not too sure, I think if you don't have a passport maybe you send your birth certificate? It said something about not having to send your passport off though! Maybe I misread..

I hope that's right coz I don't really want to buy a passport just for the sake of getting loans, that'd be a waste of money

If you were born in the UK, you will be asked to provide your passport.

If you do not have a passport you can send your original birth certificate (or adoption certificate). If you send either of these documents they must be accompanied by an identity confirmation form.

Found it on that website

I'm not sure I've never heard of it! How strange. I assume they tell you when you apply, or I hope they do!

Ohh!! Edit: 3000th post :wizard:
