Before the start of term you'll want to make sure you get your money on time. That's why it's important for you to complete the following steps.

First check that you've submitted the correct supporting evidence if required with your application then register at your university or college at the start of term.

We won't make your first student finance payment until you do

Also, make sure we have your up-to-date bank account details. The easiest way to do this is by logging on to your account.

Your account will also show your payment dates and application.

Your tuition fee loan will be paid in 3 instalments directly to your university or college.

Grants and loans will also be paid at the same time throughout the academic year.

These will go into your bank account.

You should allow a few working days for the funds to be paid into your bank account. It's that easy!
