I was just wondering that When the latest you can apply for student finance? as I can't apply for it until I get the indefinite stay to live in the UK which I will get in March or April (2017), round about that time. Furthermore, I have been living in the UK since 29 September 2014. Therefore on 29 September 2017, I will have been living in the country for three years but the student finance's website says that you must have been in this country for three years before starting your course. I know most of the courses start in early September which makes the situation worse but I also know some courses also start in October so, shall I look for the courses that are going to start after 29 September 2017 or Will I be able to get the student finance for the courses that are starting before 29 September 2017?
(I don't want to take a gap year)
And actually passed?
