Advice for students still waiting to receive their funding


Hopefully most new and returning students will have received their first instalment of funding by now, but if you are still waiting, we can help.

If you are in short term financial difficulty, or if you don’t understand why your loan has not been approved – or has not been income assessed, you may need some support from us.

The Student Advisers are here to help you find out what is going on with your application. We understand the complexities of the Student Finance regulations and processes and can give advice about evidence which you may have been asked to provide, or how to go about getting funding for repeat study.

If you’re fed up with trying to contacting Student Finance yourself, we can step in and contact them on your behalf if you give permission for us to do that, this is called consent to share.

Within the university, we can liaise with the Accommodation team about unavoidable delays to rent payments and let Income know if there problems with the Tuition Fee Loan. Outside the university, we can offer some guidance around how to communicate with your landlord and advocate on your behalf if necessary. We know that this intervention can help to alleviate the stress of these situations.

You can get in touch in the following ways:

  • Telephone  01273 642888
  • Email
  • In person appointment at your campus
  • Teams video or audio appointment

We always look forward to hearing from you and we are here to help.

Best wishes

Student Advice Service
