    Hi all

    I was recently told by somebody that the law changed and now the residency period is 5 years. Is it correct?? I will apply for a finance for 2017/2018 academic year. So by the time my course will start I have been living in England for 4 years and 3 months altough my mom has been living here 8 years and 7 months.

    So I would like to know if I am eligible for the full funding package(tuition loan, maintenance loan)? Also what kind of evidence do i need to provide and what type of application do I need to submit?

    Many thanks in advance

    You wont be eligible for a maintenance loan based on your own residency.

    You may be eligible under the category of Migrant worker & family

    If not then taking a gap year would mean you'd be eligible based on your own residence for 2018 entry
