    I recently moved house and now reside in South Wales. Before the move, I had lived at the same address in England my whole life. I believed I was not eligible for the loan, given that I now lived in Wales and was not an English resident anymore. However, I came across the following link:


    In the section titled 'Am I eligible for a Masters loan?' it says that "Loans are intended for English students. However, Scottish, Welsh or Northern Irish students are also eligible - providing that they've lived in England for at least three years for a reason other than study"

    Therefore, my question is: Am I eligible? I proceeded through the online application form just now, and it says that I am not. However, I wanted to check here to make sure.


    Student living in England are eligible to apply for funding for a university anywhere in the UK. As you no longer live in England you would not be eligible for the Postgraduate Loan through Student Finance England.
