Student Finance Direct

Just a warning to anyone who is having to deal with Student Finance Direct this year – especially  for a son or daughter who is going to uni for the first time.

I applied as a parent for my daughter’s grant back in February hoping to beat the rush and make sure that she got what grant she might be entitled to by the begining of term.

After many many phone calls and checking on their web-site, I found out at the end of last week that they were still wating for a piece of financial evidence which they had never told me they needed. If I hadnt chased and chased I dont think we would have got anywhere.

So, if you have applied and are still waiting an outcome – do keep rinigng up and checking that they think they have all the matieral required to process an application. I guess its a huge system where mistakes can be made – and the onus is on parents ( and students) to keep chasing and checking up on what they are doing. ( if you can get through to a human being that is)
