Tips & Advice

Have you sorted your funding for next year?

By GiSE 08 May 2017

It’s time to think about funding your course and living costs for next year.

Applications for student loans and grants for 2017/18 are now open, so if you haven’t already applied and you want to, you should do so now. The sooner you apply, the more likely you are to have all your money in place for the start of term.

 Don’t forget, your application is only complete when:

  •  You've submitted your application correctly,

  •  You (and, if appropriate, your parents or partner) have sent in all the evidence that Student Finance asks for

  •  You've signed and returned your 'online declaration' form, which you can download when you log into your Student Finance account.

If you apply after the deadline Student Finance will make every effort to make sure you get your funding in time but if there are delays you’ll need to contact Student Finance directly.

Remember that you only get your funding once you've enrolled onto the next year of your course; this includes self-service enrolment (the online bit) and confirming your enrolment. From that point you need to allow 3-5 working days for the funding to reach you through your bank so please bear this in mind when you’re planning your finances! Even if you’ve applied for your funding before the deadline it's wise to make sure you bring enough money with you to survive your first few weeks. 

Need funding advice?

If you need advice on funding or budgeting contact the Student Money Advice & Rights Team (SMART) at Derby Uni. They may be able to help with short-term support if there is a delay with your funding. Alternatively if you've enrolled  but still find yourself in financial need then you may be eligible to apply for some discretionary support from the University to help with priority costs.

Go on - get it sorted!
