2015/16 Student Finance Wales full-time deadline is approaching - students should apply now

Deadlines for full-time students in May and June.

16 April 2015

If you work with students who are starting or continuing on a full-time course at university or college this autumn, please remind them to apply for their student finance now.

The deadline for applications from full-time new students is 15 May 2015.

The deadline for applications from full-time continuing students is 12 June 2015

If students apply for their finance after these dates they could start the term without their funding in place.

It’s quick and easy to apply for student finance online at www.studentfinancewales.co.uk

If they’ve already started their application online, encourage them to log back into their student finance account now to finish it before the relevant deadline.

They don’t need to have a confirmed place at university or college - they can use their preferred choice of course and change it later if need be.
