Students in England encouraged to apply for finance now

Written by:
New and returning students in England are encouraged to apply for finance as soon as possible to ensure funding is in place for the next academic year.

From this week, the Student Loans Company (SLC) is contacting returning students to remind them to re-apply for next year’s student finance before 19 June.

And for new students, they should submit applications before 22 May 2020. SLC confirmed students don’t need a confirmed place on a course to apply. They can use the first choice of course and update their application later if this changes.

To apply, head online to the SLC student Finance site. It has also produced a video guide to help with the application process.

Parents who are supporting applications can see its resource site for more information.

Derek Ross, SLC’s executive director of operations, said: “We recognise that students will have much to consider at the moment. However, for those going to university this autumn, it is important that they make applying for student finance a priority.

“SLC has worked hard to ensure the continuity of the application service throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and the message is still that students should get their applications in ASAP to ensure that their student finance is in place for the new academic year.”
