Student Finance for 清算
If you're funding your university studies with a student loan through Student Finance, here's what you need to know to make sure your loan application fits your 清算 choice.
How to change your student finance after 清算
If you've already applied 学生金融 and you change your course or university through 清算, you'll need to update this in your student finance application.
This isn't the same as updating your UCAS application – your student finance application isn't linked to UCAS, so make sure to follow the steps below.
如果你来自英国 and studying full-time
登录您的帐户 去 Your Account > Change your application > University/college course 更新你的资料.
Student Finance England will re-assess your application and let you know if there are any changes to the amount you'll get.
If you're from 苏格兰, 威尔士, 北爱尔兰, 泽西岛, 格恩西岛 or the 英国属地曼岛
Update your details through your local government or education authority:
If you're a part-time student or from the EU
You'll need to complete a change of circumstance form, which you can submit online or by post.
Updating your living situation
If your living situation has also changed, due to the course you've chosen through 清算, you'll need to update this on your student finance application.
例如, if you originally applied for a university close to home and planned to live with your parents, 但 your 清算 choice means you'll now be living away from home (or vice versa) – you need to update this on your application.
如果你来自英国, you can do this at the same time as you update your course or university via Student Finance England. If you're studying part-time or you're from 苏格兰, 威尔士, 北爱尔兰, 泽西岛, 格恩西岛, the 英国属地曼岛 of the EU – follow the instructions above for updating your application.
没有应用 学生金融? 应用 今天
If you haven't applied for a student loan yet, do it as soon as you can – you don't have to wait until you have your results to apply and it only takes 30 minutes.
All you need to enter in your application is your first choice of university. If you decide to change your course or university through 清算, after receiving your results, you can follow the steps above for updating your application.
This route is much easier than applying on A Level results day – you'll be prepared no matter what the outcome. Just bear in mind that applications take at least 6 weeks to process, so you might not get all your money in time for the start of your course if you leave your student loan application to 清算. 然而, Student Finance England does its best to give you some of your loan as close to the start of your course as possible.
