    Good evening everyone!
    Ive been google-ing around for ages now, gone through all forms for this and that but i just cant find the answer for my question; (really hoping anyone out here will know)

    Do I qualify for a Childcare grant when Im an international student with swedish student finance (that does not cover anything at all for my little one)

    ??

    Anyone knowing this?
    Very grateful if so.

    Do you mean a childcare grant from Student Finance England?

    As you are an international student, i don't think you are eligible for anything from SFE.

    Phoenix is right, unfortunately. SFE is for EU/UK students and international students aren't eligible.

    Sweden is in the EU so you aren't classed as an international student, rather as an EU student.

    Unfortunately, that does not change the fact that you are not eligible. Tigermoth was close, but the childcare grant is only available for home students.

    You might be able to find another type of support for EU students by going to http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Educatio...es/DG_10035218 but it doesn't look too promising...
