If you are a continuing student you should apply as soon as possible. If you don't apply by 25 June 2021, your funding will not be guaranteed to arrive on time in September. If anything changes, for example you need to repeat, you can amend your application later.
You should still get your application in before 21 May 2021. This will mean wherever you study, you should get your money on time. If you change your mind about which university you'll go to, or if you defer or decide not to come at all, you can update the application later.
If your funding is late, you might not be able to pay your rent on time, buy your books or food, or go out during Welcome Week. The University doesn't have large amounts of money available to lend to students in this situation, so think about how you might manage if you don't apply on time and, if possible, put some money aside just in case there are any issues with your application.
New and continuing students should apply online here.
If you have any questions about your funding or making your application, please see our self-help resources on money here or contact the Student Advice Centre for more information.
If you are not a UK national or have been living outside of the UK, or you have undertaken previous higher education study, you should seek advice as soon as possible, to check whether you will be eligible for funding.
