With A-Level Results Day and Clearing finally here, and the new university year starting soon, the Student Loans Company is busy getting student finances ready.
More than one million students across England and Wales are already likely to have applied for student finance. But if you’re not quite as organised, there’s still time to get your application in.
You can update your course or university details later but it’s best to get the application in as early as possible as it can take six weeks to process an application, if we’ve received all the correct evidence.

Student finance is essential for most people attending university or college, to assist with everyday living costs. Many young people will be moving into rented accommodation and having to deal with their own finances for the first time and some students have their own families to support alongside their studies.
You apply for finance depending on where you ordinarily live and EU students should apply where they are planning to study. The Student Loans Company processes all applications for students in England and Wales.
