    Hey, I am an EU student and planning to study in the UK. I am going to apply for the student loan that is provided for students from UK and EU. What I know is that in this way I wont have to pay the tuition fees(12.000€ per year as it is a bachelor degree) before finishing my studies, but does it also cover the accommodation? And in general how does it work? :/

    The maintenance lan is for accommodation and the tuition fee loan is for fees which goes straight to the uni.

    If you applied after March 24th, you have to be living in the uk for at least 5 years.

    The student loan only covers the tuition fees, and is paid straight to the university .
    You have to get a separate maintenance loan, or get a part time job to cover living costs, though, just a part time job might not cover everything, so it's good to save up some money to fall back on.

    EU without the required previous residence in the UK are NOT eligible for a maintenance loan from Student Finance.

    Like said above, if you're eligible for a tuition loan, that goes straight to the uni. A maintenance loan is given to you for your costs, but it may not fully cover accommodation etc.

    EU students are NOT eligible for the maintenance loan - you need to have been living in the UK for 3y+ for this.

    I get the impression you haven't, so you'd only get tuition loan, which you won't see. All accommodation, flight etc costs would need to be paid by you.

    I've just checked this again and I still can't find anywhere that says that, hence why I stuck with the 3y that's on the official sites

    Try the central government website on who qualifies for SF:
    https://www.gov.uk/student-finance/who-qualifies

    EU nationals

    If you’ve been living in the UK for more than 5 years, you can apply as though you were a UK national.
    i.e. as an EU applicant, you must have lived in the UK for five years in order to get the Maintenance Loan.

    Ohhhh excellent thanks - I was mixing it up with the national reqs, oops. Does seem a bit weird to me that they're not the same......
