    Hello, my name is Fernando, I am a Spanish student who has an offer from Imperial College London to study MEng Aeronautical Engineering starting October 2016. My nationality is Spanish, as well as my parents, and I've been living here my entire life so I believe I'm eligible for a tuition fee loan.

    I have never enrolled a course at university level, and just finished my Bachillerato studies, so it seems I'm still eligible. However, there is a hypothetical scenario that might change my status as not eligible: I am planning to enroll a BA course here in Madrid, starting at the same time as my MEng at Imperial in London. I would live in London, attend university in London, and self-study at distance the modules of the BA in Madrid. I would give priority to my MEng in London, and then come to Spain from time to time (probably during Imperial vacations) to take my BA exams in Madrid.

    I have called Student Finance EU and their response was to apply as soon as possible for the tuition fee loan including an explanation of what my plans are so that they will let me know if I am eligible or not. Despite that, I would like to know whether Im going to receive the tuition fee loan before applying for it, because in case it was not possible for me to receive the loan while studying to degrees at the same time (the one in London and the one in Madrid), I would ultimately give up my BA in Madrid.

    I would truly appreciate if someone could answer me, its a very unfrequent scenario and the lady who picked up the phone at SFE EU couldn't give any further response than the one above, so I hope somebody can give me an answer here.

    Thanks!!

    I wouldn't have thought so. You're only entitled to funding (with a few exceptions) to funding for one degree.

    Exactly thats what I thought. But I would be paying for uni in Madrid entirely by myself so there is no funding I'm asking for that one
