Hi there, I'm currently unsure about if I'd be eligible for a student loan for my post graduate degree this year. I've managed to call the SLC twice and asked two people who gave me two completely different answers. The first one said I'd be ineligible and the other said it was fine. I'd love a bit more solidarity from this if possible as it seems a bit confusing.
For the three years the SLC requires reference for I was working abroad for the first year in Japan, I came back to the UK to find work the second year and ended up with only part time jobs for a year. I decided I needed to get full time work somewhere just to stop sponging of friends and family. I came back to Japan and am currently working again and have done for a year.
I consider the UK my home residence and have no real "home" here as jobs tend to end after a year and you have to get a new one. This often means moving around the country. I wish to come back to the UK and complete a masters in TESOL so I can teach people with language difficulties within the UK.
It seems to be a gray area, I've also been offered a new contract this year too but I'm unsure if accepting will affect my loan chances for this year if I cancel the employment contract part way through. Any information would be helpful, thanks.
