So I thought I knew the answer to this, but the further into it I look the more it muddies the water again.
So I am a Scottish student studying my undergraduate degree in Scotland. After graduation this summer, my plan is to move to Devon to live with my partner, who is based down there with his work.
As far as I was aware, for any postgraduate studies I would be classed as Scottish domicilied and apply to SAAS. However, now looking more into funding for PGDE funding through SAAS, I've found a statement which reads "If we gave you funding for your first course, and after this you moved to England, Wales or Northern Ireland to work, and were still living and working there on the first day of the first academic year of your course, we will normally consider you to be ordinarily resident there".
It does state that this would be if you didn't start your postgraduate course immediately after first degree. But if I were to move to England and transfer to a job down there with my current employer, would this take effect for myself?
I'm also curious about this in relation to the "Masters Loan" available in England, as I would be moving there for reasons other than purely studying.
Sorry, I'm totally confused and turned around with all of this!

If you are permanently moving to England, you would normally now apply for Student finance England as you are not moving solely for the purpose of studying.
