    Don't mean to hijack the thread, but since the deadline came up, anyone knows how long it might take to get the whole finance sorted out or loans to come through if I put in an application around mid August?

    For certain reasons, I won't be able to do so before then, and that target date is if I'm lucky.
    I think student finance england are still saying 6-8 week turnaround, but there's no guarantees and there not v reliable. Will be quicker if you're non-income assessed I guess

    Regardless of whether he's self employed, and how much tax he has to pay, shouldn't he still have at least some sort of paper trail? Like a self-assessed tax form?

    They've got around 8-10 weeks of backlog, I believe. So maybe before November?

    It sucks. Stupid SLC.

    Can't you apply for non-means tested so you just get loans and not grants...?
