    Hello I'm an EEA student currently attending university while working part-time. I applied for the maintenance loan under EEA Migrant worker.
    I just have a few questions.

    1) I sent the application to the Student Finance England normal address. Not to the one some people have specified for the EEA Migrant worker category. Want to know of this will be a problem for me.

    2) Also want to know if there's a certain amount I should earn to be classed as an EEA Migrant worker? Or a certain number of hours I should work per week to be classified as a Migrant worker?

    3) Final question, how do they calculate how much do we get as maintanace loan under EEA Migrant worker? Is there a formula orsomething?

    Please help thanks.

    Hi 4keven4,

    I'll answer your questions one at a time.

    1) I sent the application to the Student Finance England normal address. Not to the one some people have specified for the EEA Migrant worker category. Want to know of this will be a problem for me.
    It won't be a problem. It may take some extra time to get in the processing queue but it will get to the right department.

    2) Also want to know if there's a certain amount I should earn to be classed as an EEA Migrant worker? Or a certain number of hours I should work per week to be classified as a Migrant worker?
    We are looking for you to show that the work you are doing is effective, genuine and not of a scale which would be considered marginal or ancillary. There is no set amount you have to earn or minimum amount of hours you have to work.

    3) Final question, how do they calculate how much do we get as maintanace loan under EEA Migrant worker? Is there a formula orsomething?

    Please help thanks.
    If your evidence is accepted and you are granted Migrant Worker status then you are assessed on the same basis as a Home student. You can use the student finance calculator to estimate what you may be entitled to.

    Regards,

    I mean this is a pretty vague definition.

    I work at ASDA 22.5 per week since May 2017.
    I hope this should suffice.

    Hi 4keven4

    It means that you have to show that you are earning enough to support yourself.

    As a Migrant Worker you need to continue to work throughout your studies, so once accepted, you will be required to send evidence of your continued employment, each term, before the payment for that term is submitted.

    Thanks Rona
