To be able to claim maintenance loans/grants my housemate needs to have been in England 3 years to count as a home student from what I gather. But at what point does that 3 years have to come? Can he submit his claim part way through the year, on the exact 3 year mark and start receiving money as soon as it's accepted and sorted out? Can he submit his claim before the 3 year mark and start receiving it at that 3 year point? Or does he have to wait to apply until he's been here 3 years, then start receiving it at the start of the next academic year ? I think that covers all possibilities, any of which could be true.

My brother lived in Dubai for 6 years before he went to Uni with a full student loan, but my dad lived in England (has done all his life). I don't think it is as strict when there are other circumstances, I doubt you'll have problems securing the loan if you've lived in England for nearly 3 years.

It's for my housemate. He doesn't have any relatives who have lived here longer either. I'm not entirely sure when the 3 year mark is, but I'm pretty sure it's before he starts his 3rd year, although not how long before, as I think he was working here for a few months/a year before.

He has to have been here for 3 years when his course starts to be entitled to loans.
If he is already studying he won't qualify for any loans.

He thought that he would be able to claim maintenance loans/grants for just his 3rd year, but was unsure when he could apply or if he could even get it for part of his 2nd year .... hhmmm. I wasn't sure, hence why i'm asking on his behalf.

Nope, no entitlement at all I'm afraid.

Oh dear. He can live without it, but it would make it easier. It seems a bit unfair when he's paid more taxes than most British people his age at uni !
