Going to uni or college this year? If you’ll be studying a full-time undergraduate course, it’s time to get your student finance sorted.
It can take up to six weeks to process your application, so be sure to apply as soon as you can. If your application is late, your money might be too.
It’s quick and easy to apply online – you’ll just need your passport and National Insurance number.
If you’re a new student, you need to apply before 22 May to get your money in time for the start of your course, so what are you waiting for? Follow our three easy steps now.
1. Find out how much you can get
You can get money to help with both your tuition fees and living costs.
Use our student finance calculator to see how much you could get.
2. Apply online
It only takes about 30 minutes to apply online at www.gov.uk/student-finance
You don’t need a confirmed place at uni or college – just apply using your first choice and change it later if you need to.
3. Check if you need to send us anything
After you’ve checked and submitted your application, have a look at the to-do list in your online account to see if there’s anything else you need to do.
We might need financial details from your parents or partners, so make sure you send us any evidence we ask for as soon as you can.
