    Hi

    I am going to do my first bachelor's degree and I am an EU student who has been living in the UK for 5 years by the start of my course.

    However, I have no idea how I could prove that I have lived in the UK for 5 years because during the first year I didn't have a bank account, bills or anything. All the bills were on my mums name. Is there a possibility that I can send in my moms bank statement or something else to prove that I have been living together with her?

    Also, if there is no way that I can prove my residence and I choose to apply as a migrant worker. When I get the full support (tuition and maintenance) am I classed as a UK student?

    It states this on the university website "Eligible UK students are those that are classed as UK (England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland), as assessed for student support purposes, as determined by Student Finance England". I would get a quite a generous bursary from the university If I would be classed as a UK student which I should get if I would able to provide evidence for the first year.

    Kindest Regards

    Yes, but only for the last four years before the start of my course.

    Hi

    with regards to evidence the following can be provided.

    Confirmation of school records- confirming when you started and left.

    If your mum received child benefit for you- confirmation of this with dates.

    Did you have a mobile phone contract ? this would also confirm addresses and dates.

    With regards to being assessed as a migrant worker we would require the following

    Be EEA or Swiss National
    Be resident in the EEA/Switzerland for 3 years prior to the start of the first Academic Year of their course.
    Be resident in England on the first day of the first academic year
    They, their parent/step-parent, or spouse/civil partner* must be working throughout their studies
    Show they are in employment which is effective and genuine and not of a scale which would be considered marginal or infrequent where they would not be able to support themselves financially
    Be working continuously throughout their studies and receive remuneration for this work ie wages, but can also receive ‘pocket money’ for voluntary employment such as ‘Au Pair

    Thanks

    Hi,

    The mobile contract wasn't on my name. Is there any other document that I could use? (There is no document what I could think of which would prove my residence apart from the tenancy agreement)

    Also, when I take the EEA Migrant route. Am I being classified as a UK student?

    Thanks

    Hi prog775

    If you were at school or college you can send letters or certificates. If your mum got child tax credits and your named on it this can be sent too.

    If you take the migrant worker route you will be assessed as a home student.

    Thanks
