Q. My student finance is awaiting confirmation
The University will automatically update the Student Loans Company (SLC) at the start of your course, if your student funding provider, e.g. Student Finance England, has awarded you funding.
The payment date shown on your student finance payment schedule is the earliest date from which the SLC will release your payment.
Most payments are received into students bank accounts from 3-5 working days following the course start date, not before. For example a course start date of 24 September means an earliest payment date of around 28 September.
