My son has an unconditional place at an English uni in September. All his schooling was in the UK and we all hold UK passports. Today he received a letter from student finance asking for evidence to prove that he is entitled to apply for this.
My son came with my husband and I in June 2015 (as he had finished his A levels and was taking a gap year) to Canada where my husband had been offered work. He has worked here and travelled but this is difficult to provide evidence for. He has not been in the UK since June 2015. We managed to get permanent residency in Canada for the three of us in January 2016 thinking it would be useful for our son in the future if he ever wanted to work here in Canada. He never intended staying here and was delighted to be offered a place at uni. Our problem now is he is being asked for evidence of his address for the 3 years prior to September 2106. Apparently he should have resided in the UK at this time. Having acquired this PR I have an awful feeling we have now excluded him from being able to get student finance. He is devastated. I have checked you cannot just give your PR back it doesn't expire as such. Any advise is gratefully welcome
