Student Finance England
Didn’t get the results you were expecting? You might end up using Clearing or Adjustment to find a place on a university or college course. Whichever one you use, it’s important to let Student Finance England know of any changes as soon as possible, as it could affect your funding.

Student Finance England has some words of advice for anyone changing their course at this time of year.

Already applied?
If you’ve applied already, it’s easy to change your details by logging in to your account at www.gov.uk/studentfinance and going to: Your Account>Change your application>University/college course.

Once we’ve got this information, we’ll re-assess your application and let you know of any changes to the amount of student finance you can get as quickly as we can.

Haven’t applied yet?
Don’t panic! If you’ve got a place through Clearing and would like funding but haven’t applied for student finance yet, you need to do so now.

Applications take at least six weeks to be processed, so you might not get all your money straightaway – but we’ll do our best to give you some initial funding as close to the start of your course as possible.

Don’t forget – the sooner you apply, the sooner you’ll get your money.

It’s quick and easy to apply now at www.gov.uk/studentfinance

EU student?
If you’re an EU student who doesn’t meet the standard residency criteria for the full funding package, you can still apply for a Tuition Fee Loan. Applications can take up to six weeks to be processed, so if you haven’t applied yet, you need to do so straightaway.

Apply now by downloading an EU19N form from our website. If you’ve applied already, you need to let us know of any changes to your course, or university or college, by downloading an EUCO1 form.
