Help us spread the word
Let your students know that it’s quick and easy to apply – they just need to follow these simple steps:
- Fill in the relevant application form
- if they’re a new student they’ll need their passport or identity card. Students do not need a confirmed place at university or college before they apply. They can apply using their first choice and change their details later if they need to.
- If they’re a continuing student they’ll only be required to complete the relevant application form. They will not need to re-submit identity evidence – unless they have been specifically asked to provide it.
- Provide evidence – make sure students know that they need to provide any evidence we ask for. If they don’t, it could delay their application.
It can take up to 6 weeks to process their application, you should encourage students to apply as soon as possible to make sure they get their money in time for the start of their course.
