    Hello!


    I am EU student who passed the Polish Matura exam in 2012. I moved to London two months ago. I would like to sing up for student finance, but I do not know if I should get National Insurance Number first. Should I register as EU student or UK?
    I exchanged my Polish driving licence recently for an English, so I have the proof of my address.

    You are an EU student, and you should apply for funding now, and then get your National Insurance number as that can be added later.

    You will only qualify only for tuition fee funding, and not maintenance loan funding as you haven't been living in the UK for three years before the start of your course.

    Thank you!

    Do you know how much I will be waiting for my passport to be sent back to me?


    May I apply on-line at https://www.gov.uk/apply-online-for-student-finance ??
