2023 to 2024: Full-time undergraduate student finance applications are now open!

09 Mar 2023

It’s time for new and continuing full-time undergraduate students from England to apply for student finance and DSA!

You don’t need a confirmed place at university or college to apply for student finance. There’s no need to wait for UCAS offers, apply now! If you apply late, your money might be late too.

You should apply using your preferred choice and you can change your university, college or course details when you get your A-level results.

If you decide not to go to university or college this year, you can cancel your application online, so you shouldn’t wait to apply!

It’s quick and easy to apply online.

If you’ve already applied for student finance

Sign in to your student finance account to start your DSA application.

The application for DSA should be on your ‘to-do list’ if you chose DSA in your application for other support. If it is not, select ‘change your circumstances’ to apply.

If you do not have an online account because you applied for student finance by post, fill in a student finance form (form DSA1).

If you have not applied for student finance

You can apply for DSA when you apply for student finance online.

If you do not need student finance, you can fill in a student finance form (form DSA1) to apply just for DSA.
