Once you have registered at your university or college you will receive your first student finance payment at the start of each term.

Your Maintenance Loan will be paid directly into your bank account but you must have first registered with your university or college.

The payments will come at the start of each term, dates of which differs at each institution, so you should check exactly when the payment is scheduled by on your Student Finance website account.

For most people, the payment will land in your account on the scheduled date, however, some banks may take longer to clear funds and this may cause a delay in the money appearing in your account.
