Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses

Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses (TDAE) will reimburse excess costs incurred when undertaking practical training on placements.

Useful information

We have produced a handy guide to help you when completing your TDAE application form:

Completing your TDAE claim - A Guide for Students and Universities (PDF: 753KB)

When can I submit a TDAE claim?

You'll need to submit your form within 9 months of the last date of the placement period you are claiming for.  

Some students may wish to submit their forms on a fortnightly or monthly basis during their placement or wait until the end of placement to submit all claims together. 

Don't forget to attach your student coversheet to your application form as this helps us allocate the form and any evidence to your account.

If this is your first application for any element of LSF, you'll need to send us a copy of your student finance letter as evidence you're in receipt of funding. We are not able to return this letter. 

Once we have received your application and all relevant evidence we will process your application within 25 working days.
