The deadline for Student Finance England applications for new full-time students was 31 May - however students can still apply.

New students who are starting a course this autumn are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

02 June 2015

The application deadline for new full-time students to apply for student finance for AY2015/16 has now passed.  New students who are starting a course this autumn are encouraged to apply for student finance online as soon as possible, to make sure they have some of their funding in place as close as possible to the start of their course.  

It takes at least six weeks to process student finance applications and we will do everything we can to process all applications before the start of the academic year. However, by applying after the deadline, students may not have all of their student finance funding in place for the start of their course.  Students don’t need to have a confirmed place to apply, they can use their preferred choice of course and change it later if they need to.

For continuing full-time students, the deadline is Tuesday 30th June so please encourage your students to submit their applications as soon as possible.
