Hello! Thanks for creating this thread - I am an applicant from Greece and have firmed and insured my offers for 2015 entry.

I have been told that student finance applications for EU students for the tuition fee loans open in March/April - is there any specific date available?

Regarding means-tested support (the University Bursary Schemes, I am aware that I am not eligible for government maintenance loans), do the income statements have to be translated into English?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi

If you are planning on starting university or college in September 2015, the application form will be available from Spring 2015. You should apply as early as possible to make sure your Tuition Fee Loan is ready for the start of your course. This means you might be applying before you have a confirmed place, but you can change your course details later if you accept a place on a different course.

You’ll be issued a separate bursary application form EU15B after submission of main application for finance EU15N if the HEI offers bursaries/scholarships.

Customers who are eligible to apply for the bursary will be required to provide evidence of their income. This should be in the form of an employers letter on company headed paper stating their yearly earnings or tax. This does not need to be translated.

You’ll need to ask your University or College about the translation. As EU not Means tested we don’t ask for financial evidence as part of the application.

Hi

You should apply as soon as possible. You can always change your course at a later date should you accept a different place.

New students should apply for year they intend to begin their studies ( no gap year option for EU students). Continuing students should apply as normal and complete a Change of circumstance if they change their mind.

Hi Raq123

You’ll be able to apply for student finance in the same way as a UK national because you’ve been in the UK for more than three years. It’s quick and easy to apply online, the application is available now at www.gov.uk/studentfinance

Because you’re an EU national we’ll ask you to send additional evidence to show you’ve been in the UK for more than three years, we’ll write to you and let you know exactly what we need once you’ve submitted your application.

If you change your mind about starting this year you can cancel your application online before your course is due to start. If you do that you’ll start a new application the next year.

You can watch our films on YouTube or visit our dedicated student finance zone here on The Student Room to find out more about the student finance available to you and the application process.

Hello,
I wondered whether I can apply for a tuition fee loan for a one-year International Foundation Program in the UK starting in September 2015. I am a student from the EU.

Many thanks for your advice!

Hi

To apply for a Tuition Fee Loan the course you’re studying must be a certain type and lead to a recognised qualification. The most common types of courses you can get a Tuition Fee Loan for are:

• First degree, for example a BSc, BA or BEd
• Foundation Degree, for example a FdA, FdSc or FdEng
• Higher National Certificate (HNC)
• Higher National Diploma (HND)
• Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE)
• Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)
• Some Initial Teacher Training (ITT) courses

There are some exceptions, so if you’re not sure what type of course you’re going to do, or it isn’t on the list, you should speak to the university or college who will be able to advise you.
