In September I am going to start studying law. I moved to the UK in September 2014. So, I am not eligible to receive a maintenance loan but I know as a migrant worker I can get the same benefits as a UK student. I have a part time job that is 15 hours. Do I really need 16 hours. I am living in Derby and over here it is so hard to get even a job as student. I am still looking for another job but the problem is that I need to have a job at least 3 months in order to send my payslips.
I am grateful for any help.

You can apply as a migrant worker, you need to show that you would earn enough funds to live on from your employment without having and student finance.
These are some of terms:
- Be EEA or Swiss National
- Be resident in the EEA/Switzerland for 3 years prior to the start of their course
- Be resident in England on the first day of the first academic year
- They, their parent/step-parent, or partner* must be working throughout their studies
- Show they are in employment which is effective and genuine and not of a scale which would be considered marginal or infrequent where they would not be able to support themselves financially
- Be working throughout their studies and receive remuneration for this work ie wages, but can also receive ‘pocket money’ for voluntary employment such as ‘Au Pair
