    Backstory:
    - Finished undergrad at St Andrews funded by SAAS
    - Permanently moved to Cardiff for a masters and PhD
    -Trying to apply for DSA in Wales

    Problem:

    I was filling out the DSA form for Student Finance Wales but I moved to Wales for "the sole purpose of receiving higher education". As directed by the form I phoned them and they claim this means I should apply through SAAS.

    So I phoned SAAS who say I am now resident in Wales and should apply through Student Finance Wales.

    Question:

    Does anyone have a definitive answer to this? Especially helpful would be any documentation I can point at that says one way or the other.

    Thank you!

    I would have said Wales because it's where you live. It's not like you have your own home in Scotland and normally live there.

    That's what I thought! I was just trying to figure out who to argue with really (SAAS or SFW). Thanks
