Hello, I'm a Danish national but have not lived in the EU for almost a decade.
Due to complicated circumstances my parents will not be paying my university fees or anything for that matter, I was wondering if I am eligible for student finance or student loans in the UK.
I am considering doing a part-time job to be able to put myself through university, though I don't know if this will be enough as I am considered an international student in UK and will be paying the international fees and I have applied for on-campus accommodation, though I am definitely going to go off-campus if required.
My total expenses, including uni fees, food, travel, rent and laundry etc comes to about 24k pounds - as an overestimate.
Unfortunately you'll have to pay international fees and the student finance company will not give you any loans. (They might give you the tuition loan but I think they have the same rule of having to have been in EU for the last 3 years) All I can suggest is looking at scholarships, bursaries and grants in all countries. One you were born in, the one you live in currently and in UK. You may be able to find an organisation who could support you.
A part time job will definitely not be enough for everything. The only way it would work would be working full time and doing a part time course.
You can always come over and just work for a few years saving up money before doing the course. But I'm not sure how well that would work out with brexit
