    I'm from Romania(EU country) and I want to apply to a distance learning undergraduate course at Birkbeck and I want to know if I'm eligible for the government free grant? I called financial help and they talled me that you're only eligible for it if you live and work in the UK but I don't think they fully understood what I was asking so that's why I'm asking on this forum as well.

    I read in a prospectus that it was eligible for some EU students, however only one of the 3-4 seemed to mention it. Some clarification would be appreciated.

    You can get the free grant if you want to go to Scotland.

    If you apply for Scotland, you get finance with the SAAS Program.

    Only one university seemed to mention it, and it said some EU-students. In other words, who and how to qualify? The fact that the three or four other universities didn't care to mention it being available to EU students makes me wonder if it really is, and how strict the 'rules' are.
