    Hello,

    I am a Polish applicant from a low-income household (yearly income: 27,000 brutto and less than 19,800 after paying taxes etc). Does it mean that I qualify for any extra-help? If it doesn't and I should apply as a migrant worker, when and where should I start to work? If I get a job for summer - starting in June - in my home-country, would it be enough?

    Thank you for your answer,
    Z

    HI Zielenna

    Is it the 2015/16 or 2016/17 academic year that you will be applying for? When the application is made, we will assess you based on the evidence we receive which shows your parents income and we are unable to say at this time exactly what funding you will be entitled to.

    Also, if you apply as a Migrant Worker you must be employed for the duration of your studies and be able to provide evidence of your UK employment.

    If you would like to discuss your application further, please contact us on 0300 100 0607.

    Thanks.

    I am applying for the academic year 2016/2017. Can I apply for the funding now so I find out what my situation is going to be? If it is possible, I would like to know how much I am going to receive, so I can make appropriate plans.

    Hi,

    Applications for 16/17 will open early next year in February or March. If you are a migrant worker, you would need to be working in the UK, but you would then be entitled to normal funding, so the student finance calculator can give you an idea of what you are entitled to. It can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-calculator

    If you are not a migrant worker, you will be entitled to tuition fees only as an EU student.

    Thanks
