    I'm living in uk for nearly 10 years now. I decided to start a university course in jan 17. Should I apply as a uk student or eu ? is a uk driving licence an acceptable identity document? my Id card has expired couple a weeks ago and i wont receive a new passport until sep/october so it might be to late to apply for a student loan then.

    You can apply as a UK student if you've been living in the UK for at least the last 5 years. You can apply for student finance up to 9 months after your course starts.

    ok but how is that working with course fees have i to pay upfront?

    Hi agnes889

    Please submit your application when you have your ID. as long as we have time to process it before your course starts, the funding can be paid on time.
