Migrant worker loan? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone,
    so I'm currently 2nd year student at college and I'm about applying to uni.
    I and my family have been living in the UK for a year and my dad for 2 years (so it will be 2 years for me and my family and 3 years for my dad when my university course starts).
    To get maintenance loan I need to live in the UK for 3 years or more from the day when the course start, so I can't apply for this loan, but I found out about migrant worker loan and I'm wondering if I can apply for this? I don't have a part time job but my parents do work (my dad for 3 years and my mum for 1 year), and from what I found out this loan is for migrant workers or family member of migrant workers.
    We are from the EU country so I know I can get student loan, but it would be really helpful if I qualify for this migrant worker loan as well because I want to study in London and living there is so expensive

    You may be eligible to apply as the child of a migrant worker as long as you can provide sufficient evidence.

    To apply as the child of a migrant worker, you would be required to send:
    • Passport or National Identity Card
    • Parent/Step-Parents Passport or National Identity Card (Proof of Nationality)
    • If you are over 21 on the first day of the first academic year of your course you must provide evidence that you have a physical or financial dependency on your parent/step-parent
    • Birth Certificate of the student to show child of biological parent
    • Evidence of parent/step-parents employment such as copy of contract of employment, last 3 months payslips, most recent P60 or most recent Self Assessed Tax return, last 3-6 months invoices with coinciding bank statements, evidence of Class 2 NIC contributions if Self Employed
Is GoT overrated?
