Hi all. I'm so upset at the moment. I've had to fund my Access course privately while waiting for my student finance to come through. I'm a New Zealand passport holder. I've just heard today that even though I've been in the UK for 39 years I have been refused my Advanced Learners Loan as I let my Right of Abode expire and can't prove my status for the last 3 years. I just didn't think I needed to renew it, nothing malicious about it. They're expensive and I didn't plan on leaving the country, I've just worked hard. As I can't prove my status my finance has been refused. I have sent a load of tax documents to them to prove I've been working as I was told it could be reassessed on a case by case basis but there's no guarantee they'll change their minds.
Has anyone any ideas on what I could do or have experience of this?

Hi, We appreciate that your Right of Abode expired and was not renewed and due to this you have been refused funding. Although you have advised that you have sent tax documents, in order fro us to reconsider we would require a Certificate of Entitlement which would need to be applied for and then provided to us to reconsider you application for funding. The link providing details of the Certificate of Entitlement and how to apply for this. https://www.gov.uk/right-of-abode/ap...of-entitlement . Thanks
