    I've been living in UK for 3 years and I'm about to apply for Uni. However, I am not eligible for the student maintenance loan because I would have to live in UK for 5 years. I have family living here for over 10 years and we are all EU residents but no one has the residence card. What are my options?

    Are you or your parents working in the UK? Can they provide proof of this?

    If your parents have been working here then you should be able to apply for a maintainance loan as the child of a migrant worker, student finance will want evidence like payslips from both your parents.*
