Please be aware that Student Finance England are currently undertaking a sample check on a number of students who state they are living away from home. The full process will involve emails and text messages being sent to a selection of students, followed by a letter with more detailed instructions. The emails will come from a dedicated mailbox, firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you are randomly selected as part of the sample then please treat the request as genuine and respond within the time scale to ensure your Student Finance application is assessed correctly.
If you are asked to provide any bank statements, remember to remove any bank details (sort code and account number).
