Hi there ! I am a European citizen and I have recently applied for a MA in Fashion Communication at Central Saint Martins. After doing a bit of research about tuition fees and student loans I am more confused than ever. Apparently I could be eligible for a Student Loan that will cover my tuition fee for the MA Course. However, I was wondering if there could be any additional help for living costs for European students? I have been living and working in UK for 2 and a half years, moved here July 2014. I checked the Gov website and I can get this additional financial help only if I had been living and working in UK for 3 years. Is this correct? Is there any other chance I can get another loan to cover living costs? Please could you help me clarify the loan situation ? Thank you

Regards,
Paula Gombos

For Postgraduate students there is no seperate tution fee and living cost loan. There is one postgraduate loan available up to £10,000 which it appears may be available to you:

You may also be eligible if you’re an EU national and all the following apply:

  • you’re living in England on the first day of the first year of your course
  • you’ve normally lived in the European Economic Area or Switzerland for the past 3 years (this is also known as being ‘ordinarily resident’)
  • you’ll be studying at a university or college in England

If you need any more money its up to you to plug the shortfall.
