    Student Finance Overpayment

    Student Finance Overpayment 1st Nov 10 at 7:55 AM
    My daughter attended Aberystwyth Uni, doing Psychology last year, her 1st yr.
    She completed the first year and passed all the 1st yr exams.

    However she decided she did not want to continue with the course. And wanted a total change.

    she applied and got a place at Harper Adams Uni doing Rural Enterprise.

    She informed all the correct people, got transfer forms, contacted Student Finance and told them!
    She is on full loan and has highest level of maintenance grant possible, due to family finances.

    She worked all summer as a waitress. To keep herself afloat.

    She was told by student Finance thay she did not qualify for the summer payment so did not recieve it.

    Friday she recieved a letter from student finance saying they had overpaid her by 600+ (i cant remember exact amount)

    It states they have written to her previously asking for the money, but we've had no other letters.

    where does she stand with this?

    in our experience of student finance they dont know anything about anything!

    Anyone else had this problem and how was it solved

    i have told her to phone them, but she cant while at uni as it will take all her mobile phone minutes!
    First win 14/12 Playtex bra & Knickers!!!!
    won Rimmel Foundation 08/02
