    Hi!
    I'm a EU student holding a university offer to study in the UK. I was wondering if I would be able to receive a student loan despite the fact that I sent the documents the day before the deadline. I had also made an account at the government's website but then found out that only UK students apply for a loan through the site so I cancelled the application. As i have already sent the paper documents through mail, they would be concidered, wouldn't they?

    In short, I'm concerned whether I would receive the loan or not, as this would decide if I would be able to study in the UK.

    Thanks.

    Deadline is 9 months after the Academic Year. If your thinking May 26th, that wasn't a deadline and it didn't apply to EU students anyway.

    You can get the funding as long as your an EU national, lived in the EEA for the past 3 years and you must be in the UK on the first day of the start of your course so don't worry

    You can only get a loan for tuition fees. You have to have lived in the UK for the last 5 years to get a maintenance loan.

    Like I already said. The deadline is 9 months after the academic year so if you start August/September/October/Nov/dec 2017 the deadline is the 1st june 2018

    I don't know what deadline your talking about now
