    Hello,

    I am actually trying to find some information out on Post Graduate Loans.
    Can I just confirm if an EU national is allowed to apply for a PGL?
    I spoke to someone from the Student Loan Company yesterday. They informed me that, as long as the EU student is living in the UK prior to the start of the course in question, they were entitled to apply for a loan.
    On your site here I see the following information:
    To apply for a Postgraduate Loan you must:

    be a UK or EU national or have settled status (this means that there are no restrictions on how long you can stay in the UK),
    normally live in England, and
    have been living in the UK for at least three years before the start of your course.

    and then:
    If you’re an EU national and don’t normally live in England, your university must be in England.

    The loan amount would be for the cost of the actual tuition fees. I just wondered if there was also a living costs loan that could be taken?
