Don’t delay, apply well in advance
It is very important to apply for a Student Finance Loan well in advance. The general guidance states that applications take approximately 6-8 weeks for processing, however Student Finance England can request extra evidence at any time. You are eligible to apply for funding up to 9 months from the day your course started. It is crucial to understand that each time more evidence is requested, the application outcome can be further delayed. For many students the application process can be stressful and challenging, but Mont Rose College can equip you with detailed information regarding the process. We strongly encourage every student to apply for loans as soon as possible. We do not want our Students to stress out about their funding and we would rather ensure you focus on your studies. Education should be your main priority while studying with us, hence we are here to support you in every way.
How to apply?
How you apply depends on whether you have studied before and your nationality. It can simply be done online when you have an online account, but paper application forms found through the ‘forms finder’ on the official Student Finance England’s website are also often used. The eligibility criteria may seem unclear to many students, but our team know the necessary steps to take in every situation. We often support our students by liaising with Students Finance England on their behalf to establish the likelihood of loan approval. Together, we can formulate a plan regarding your studies and financial support. The outcome of each application is highly circumstantial and we can only make judgments on a case basis. We understand that this process may be new to many and we offer our support to navigate through the applications as best as we can. Please do not be afraid of seeking help. We want every student to feel supported and we strive to ensure they receive all the necessary help. However, if you wish to check your eligibility for Student Finance prior to speaking to us, you may do so by visiting the official website https://www.gov.uk/student-finance and reading through the available material.
