Important Notice – Student Finance

Student Finance payments are scheduled to be released once you’ve successfully enrolled online, and once your course has officially started.

New students

If you have applied for Student Finance, you must also log into Blackboard for the first time once enrolled.

This will trigger a notification advising us that you are engaging with USW and will allow us to confirm your registration with the Student Loans Company.

You can then expect to receive payment within 4 to 6 working days, depending on who you bank with. Payments will not be released until your course has started.


Returning students

You are only required to be enrolled on your course for the registration confirmation to be sent for your student loans. 

If your application for a loan has been approved at least four working days before the start date of your course then you should receive the loan in your bank account on the first day of your course.

If your application for a loan has not been approved before this it will take three to five working days after confirmation has been sent for you to receive your loan.
