- Register online - create an account to get started.
- Fill in the application - you’ll need your passport, bank details and National Insurance number. Remember, you don’t need a confirmed place at university or college before you apply. You can get a head start now using your first choice and edit the details at a later date if you need to.
- Provide evidence - make sure you have evidence of your identity, qualifications, and other information noted in your application. If you don’t have this ready it may delay your application.
If you are a continuing full-time undergraduate student you can also reapply for financial support by logging into your online account.
