Messages from SLC
To make sure you are paid your student finance at the start of term, please sign and return the declaration form Student Finance sent you with your Financial Notification letter.
Once you are fully registered with the University, it will take around 2 working days for us to confirm your attendance with student Finance and your student finance will be paid into your bank in 2 to 3 working days thereafter.
Please note that you will not receive any money prior to start of your course. Your Maintenance Loan and any grants due to you are paid directly into your bank account. Your Tuition Fee Loan is paid directly to the University.
