    Hi guys,

    I'm hoping to apply to university for 2017/18 and was wondering what type of financial support would be available to me.

    I have an Albanian birth certificate however I've lived in England for three years now. Would I be eligible for tuition fees or a maintenance loan?

    If not I've also heard of a EU tuition fee loan which I'm not sure if I'd be eligible for?

    Any advice would be appreciated guys!

    Hi, I can advise that as Albania is not in the EU/EEA the requirement to be able to be considered for any type of funding from us would be that you would have to have residency in the UK 5 years prior to the course commencing and if do not meet the residency requirements you would be unable to receive funding. Thanks

    Thanks Hugh,

    Would my leave to remain status in the UK affect the decision or my eligibility? I was awarded indefinite leave to remain in April 2016 and have lived in the UK for over three years now.

    Thanks

    Hi

    You may be eligible to funding based on your leave to remain, however it's best to call us on 0300 100 0607 to allow us to ask some further questions before we can give a definite answer.

    Thanks
