How and when to apply

Apply online

The quickest and simplest way to reapply is online.

You just need to log into your online account and reapply. Even if you haven’t applied online before, you don’t need to register as you’ll have had a customer reference number sent to you in the post.

Although we recommend applying online, we still have paper applications available if you need one. If you require a paper application, contact us

We welcome Welsh correspondence and calls. This won't lead to a delay in our response.

The deadline date for applying for student finance in academic year 2018/19 is 9 June 2018.

If you apply after the deadline you’re not guaranteed to have money paid into your bank account for the start of term so we recommend you apply as soon as possible if you haven’t already.

Final cut-off date for applications

You can apply up to 9 months after the start of your course. If you apply after this, then there is no guarantee you’ll receive any funding.
