How to apply

Need to change your student finance application?

If you have already applied for student finance and need to change your application, you may be able to do so online, by logging into your student finance account. What you are able to change will depend on what stage your application is at.

You will also need to notify us of any changes to your course, by emailing

If needed we will inform Student Finance of the changes.

Online security

Be careful with your personal details online. Students are often targeted with phishing emails around student finance payment dates. It is important to know that:

  • the Student Loans Company (SLC) will never ask you to update your bank details by email
  • SLC will never ask you to verify your student account details by email
  • you should ignore SLC branded messages that tell you to 'validate your account' or provide any personal, security or banking details.
