    INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS ONLY

    Seeming as none of us are entitled to the UK government maintenance loans I was curious how most of us here will be getting the necessary money to pay for food, accommodation, bills, clothes, haircuts and so on while we study so I made this poll, just check the one that corresponds to you and press submit.

    Wait what the ****. You're getting a government maintenance loan having not lived in Britain for 3 years before?

    Ooooooh. Sorry I misread, I had unis in mind when I made the poll thinking that most of us here are uni students.

    I said private loan because I'm getting a maintenance loan from the student loan company but I don't think that counts as a private loan as they are owned by the government. Why is there no option for getting a maintenance loan from the student loans company?

    Well because as far as I know the Student Loans company doesn't give loans to non-UK nationals who haven't been resident in the UK for 3 years before the course.

    Oh sorry, was this poll only directed towards non-UK nationals? I didn't realise as you gave no indication of this in your thread title, or area of the forum in which it was posted. I clearly should have read your original post more carefully.

    Woops, sorry I tried posting this to International Students originally but the Janny must have decided to put it here anyway because it's a poll. My bad. Sadly I don't see an option to change the thread title though.
