Help with Student Finance England
If you are having problems with your student funding and wish the Student Funding Advisor to contact Student Finance England on your behalf, you will need to set up “Third Party Consent to Share”.
This means that an advisor from the university can speak to Student Finance England regarding your application for student funding on your behalf, without the need for you to be present, to facilitate this process you must first contact Student Finance England and give permission for your information to be shared with a third party.
To set up Third Party Consent to Share:
- Contact Student Finance England: 0300 100 0607
- Request to set up Third Party Consent to Share be given to the advisory team at my University
- Create your own Consent Password
You will then need to notify the Student Funding Advisor of your Customer Reference Number, chosen Consent Password and student details.
