Latest student finance news

Student Finance England (SFE) have opened applications for student funding from Monday 29 February. New students starting in September 2016 should go to GOV.UK's student finance pages to find out more. 

Continuing students should wait for SFE, SFW or SFNI to contact them before they apply. Student finance will automatically process applications for some continuing students for 2016/17 (those who were non-income assessed). 

Continuing students who do not have their applications automatically processed will be contacted during March 2016 and asked to apply online. However, the paper application is now available.
