Full-time undergraduate 2021 to 2022 student finance applications are now open!

11 March 2021

Let your students know

Great news! Students can now apply for 2021 to 2022 full-time undergraduate student finance! Tell your students about it on your social media channels. Let students know that the quickest and easiest way to apply is through their online account and it only takes 30 minutes. Remember, they do not need a confirmed place at university to make an application. Encourage students to apply early – if they apply late, their money could be late too!

What can students get?

There’s lots of help available to support students while they study. They could get a Tuition Fee Loan to help cover the cost of their tuition fees, as well as help with their living costs. There’s also extra help for students with a disability, long-term health condition or students who have children or an adult who depends on them financially.

Find out more about the types of finance and additional support available.

When to apply?

It’s important to apply early. To make sure students get their money in time for the start of their course, the deadline to apply is 15 April for new students and 25 June for continuing students. If they apply after this, their money might be later than expected.

If they’re a new student, they’ll need to create an account with us before applying. They may already have an account if they have applied for student finance before or received EMA (Education Maintenance Allowance). If so, they should use the same account details and CRN.
