Students can apply online on the GOV.UK website.

There is a range of resources available on our practitioner website that will help you guide students should they have any questions about what funding they can apply for, how they apply and what evidence they might need for their application.

Let your students know that it’s quick and easy to apply online – they just need to follow these simple steps:

  1. Register online  students need to create an account.
  2. Fill in the application  they’ll need their passport, bank details and National Insurance number. Students do not need a confirmed place at university or college before they apply. They can apply using their preferred choice of course and can change their details later if they need to.
  3. Provide evidence  make sure students know that they need to provide any evidence we ask for. If they do not, it could delay their application.

Continuing students can also now reapply by logging into their online account.

It can take up to 6 weeks to process their application, so encourage students to apply early to make sure they get their student finance in time for starting their course. It will take them around 30 minutes to complete their application.
