Applications for continuing/returning students to reapply for student finance for the academic year 2019/20 is now open. Please apply now to make sure your money is ready at the start of your course.
Important changes to Student Finance Process 2019/20 for continuing students:
There has been a change to the Student Finance process for continuing students – you must now apply to receive it.
In previous years you may have automatically received an offer of funding for the academic year ahead, however as the paper declarations have been scrapped by SFE you will need to submit an online application for your funding. The deadline to do this to ensure your funding is ready for the start of term is 22 June 2019.
To apply for your funding, please visit www.gov.uk/student-finance.
If you do not apply, you will not receive any funding. It is your responsibility to ensure that your funding is in place for the academic year ahead.
This is an SFE process change and is not exclusive to QMUL students. If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact SFE directly on 0300 100 0607.
If you need help in applying for funding, please contact our Advice and Counselling Service.
Reapplying for student finance has been made easier:
- Students can reapply for student finance on their Student Finance portal, please use the links on this page. You no longer need to sign and return the Student Finance Declaration like you did before. Students instead now read the online terms and conditions and re-enter their password to confirm that they agree to them. Once Student Finance have processedyour application they will send your Student Finance Entitlement letter.
- If students applied for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) last year along with student finance, you won’t need to reapply for DSAs every year. If you only applied for DSAs last year Student Finance will send you the form to reapply. If you're applying for DSAs for the first time, you will need to download the form from www.gov.uk/studentfinance or let Student Finance know and they send them a copy.
- Students will need to register at university or college. Student Finance can’t pay until you do!
- Applications for student finance need to be made by 22 June 2019. Applications made after this date might result in students not receiving all their money in time for the start of the course.
