Student loan applications for 2019//20 are open now. Apply early to make sure you get your money on time.
If you are going to university this autumn, you can apply online for student finance now. You don’t need to have a university place confirmed to start your application: you can use the details of your planned course, and update the information later if you need to.
If you complete your application by 24 May, you should receive your loan in time for the start of your course – but the sooner you apply, the less risk there is of something going wrong.
