Re-apply for your student finance as soon as possible to make sure you have your money when you return to your course.
Some continuing students have been automatically assessed by Student Finance England for financial support for their studies next academic year and others should have been sent a reminder to re-apply.
If you have not already done so, you can go online and re-applyYou need to print out the declaration form, sign it and return it to your funding body. Once they’ve processed your application they’ll send you your Student Finance Entitlement letter. If you applied for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) last year along with your student finance, you won’t need to re-apply for DSAs every year. If you only applied for DSAs last year they’ll send you the form to re-apply. If you’re applying for DSAs for the first time, you’ll need to download the form, or let your funding body know and they’ll send you a copy.
The quickest and easiest way to apply/check your assessment is online. If you apply after the deadline date, you might not get all your money in time for the start of your course, but they’ll try to make an initial assessment so you’ll have some money as close to the start of your course as possible.
The deadline dates for returning students are:
Student Finance Wales 10 June 2016
Student Finance England 24 June 2016
Student Finance Northern Ireland and Student Awards Agency Scotland 30 June 2016
