Full-time undergraduate students from England and Northern Ireland can apply for 2023/24
It's time for new and continuing full-time undergraduate students from England and Northern Ireland to apply for student finance. Please encourage your course applicants to do this as soon as possible.
Students do not need a confirmed place at university or college to apply. There’s no need to wait for UCAS offers. If they apply late, their money might be late too.
New students should apply using their preferred choice. They should be strongly encouraged to check their course on their application as soon as they accept your course offer. They can check and, if necessary, correct this on their online account.
We expect EU Tuition Fee only applications to open from April 2023.
Part-time undergraduate applications are expected to open from June 2023.
