Sorting your finance

Been offered a place at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) through Clearing or Adjustment? Find out about sorting your student finances, including loans, bursaries, and how to apply.

How to sort out your student finance

The content below applies to full-time UK home undergraduate students only. If you're an international student, you can find information on how and when to pay your fees and setting up a UK bank account on our International page.

The action you need to take now to sort out your funding depends on whether you have already submitted your student finance application form to your national student finance service.

I've already applied for student finance

This applies if you have already applied for student finance but:

  • will now be studying a different course, and / or
  • will now be attending a different university from the one you originally declared on your application form.

Next steps

  • If you applied to Student Finance England, log on to your student finance account and update your university / course details.
  • Select ”Your details” from the menu and follow the prompts to change your course and / or university details.
  • Make sure you submit your change of circumstances as soon as possible. If you don’t, you may not be able to complete your enrolment, which will result in a delay in releasing your loan payment. In addition, NTU won’t be able to assess your eligibility for our NTU bursary scheme.
  • If you are from Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, you will need to contact your student finance service (details below), to advise them of your change of course / university.

If you originally applied to your national student finance service by the stated deadline, your student finance should still be in place for the start of term, provided you update your student finance account to reflect your course / university details promptly.

I haven’t applied for student finance

If you haven't applied for your student finance, you should do so as soon as possible. You can apply for a tuition fee loan, maintenance loan and NTU Bursary online in one application.

Go to your national student finance service website and follow the appropriate links.

Applying at this late stage is likely to delay your student finance at the start of the academic year, so you are advised to have some money available to cover your expenses for the first few weeks. Our Student Financial Support Service can help if you experience prolonged funding delays.
