ARGH. I did my A-Levels summer in 2009 and am currently on a gap year, with an un-conditional offer of September 2010?.. Soo... I'm just doing my application for student finance as IIRC it has to be in by the end of April 2010. Problems so far: Their security certificate has expired . Um, do I really want to be giving them my passport number!? Course start date. I don't know this! End of September 2010 I guess! But they want dd/mm/yyyy. Also, how would anyone who's not doing a gap-year do this? They'll only have their five conditional offers right now, and even if they have the dates they don't know which of the five they'll be going to? University name. "University of the West of England, Bristol" wasn't found. Manually scrolling though I did however find the "West England, University of". Um, crap search algorithm or what!? Course name. There's "Software Engineering FT" and "Software Engineering SW"... What on earth is FT and SW? Course length. Well it's a three year course which is four years with the optional industrial placement. I can't say right now whether I'll get a placement or not in two years time! Tuition Fee costs. Um, I don't know a number yet! 'A lot of money'? Argh all their number forms. I'm using the latest Safari on the latest Mac OS (yeah "tree-hugging hippy", my PC is the other side of the room! ) and the forms for number input are only one character wide. So, for instance, when you fill in your National Insurance number (on their webpage with an invalid security certificate!) in each box you type in two numbers, but it's only wide enough to show one! As you can tell, it was a long day at the office today and this has cheesed me right off. TLDR; the first whiney student finance rant of the 2010-11 year!
