    I moved in the UK August 2014 from Bulgaria. What I need is to get a maintenance loan because my parents would not be able to support me. I am now in my GAP year just because I need to live in the UK for 3 years to be able to get the loan. The only problem is that I lived here for these years but I never got myself a registration certificate that I live in the UK. What other ways I can use to proof that I lived here for all these years and if I apply for a certificate now would that affect my application?

    Unfortunately the residency rule changed in APril 2016. EU students now need to be resident in the UK for 5 years prior to the start of their course in order to be eligible for a maintenance loan.

    Hi

    EU nationals applying for UK Home Student funding are required to have 5 years residency within the UK.

    Thanks
