    Hey, guys!

    I'm from Portugal and finished high school here, but I'm going to start working in England on the 4th of February. I have also received offers from the universities I wanted to study in, so I have everything sorted and my only worry is the Tuition Fee Loan.

    I'd like to ask you:

    1. Is it difficult to get this Loan or is it something that I can consider as guaranteed?

    2. Will it help me get the Loan if I start working in England in February or is this meaningless to the government?

    3. I'm going to work to raise some money mainly because of my living costs (accommodation and food). Is it possible for the government to deny me the Loan if I have about £7000 in the bank which will later be used to pay for the accommodation and living costs?

    Thank you so much for your help!

    Take care,

    Rodrigo

    And also, my last question is:

    4. I went to university in Portugal this year, but since I didn't have enough money for tuition fees, I left and want to come to study in the UK because I can pay the tuition fees after I graduate. Can the UK government deny me the Tuition Fees Loan because of this?

    Thank you so much!

    If you spent a year or less at university in Portugal and you've been in the EU the last three years you are guarenteed a tuition fee loan for all years of your new course. Any savings e.c.t are irrelevant.

    That is such a relief to read! Thank you so much!

    Can you link me a source to this info so I can check other information about this?
