New students are being alerted to a [problem] where fraudsters claim to offer a "educational grant" in a bid to con them into divulging bank details.

 

The emails typically claim to be from the university's finance department and trick the recipient into clicking on a link to an online form and entering their personal and banking details.

 

The Student Loans Company said students were particularly vulnerable to "phishing" attempts around the main payment dates, in September, January and April.
