    Hi,

    I am an Italian student and I start my undergraduate course in Sept 2017.
    I have called the gov.uk office several times but they always tell me something different.
    I have applied to the EU Student Loan to study in England, but in order to get some help with the living costs I want to apply to the EU Migrant Worker Scheme as well, as I will be both studying and working.

    What I have understood about it (I'm not evn sure it's correct!! That's what they said to me last time I called them) is that I have to move to UK on the 01st Sept (or before) and find a job (whenever??). After a few months of working I can apply to the Scheme by proving I have been living in UK since the 1st Sept and I have been working for a few months.

    First of all, is this right??
    How do I prove I have been living in UK by that date?
    What do I need to do in order to be eligible?

    Thank you,
    Francesca
