    Hi there,

    Next year, I am applying for uni, I am eligible to get the Tuition Loan as I have 3 years of living in the UK, but I am not sure that I can get the Maintenance Loan as from what I've read, I need to have at least 5 years, which I don't.

    In the UK I am living with my uncle as both my parents are in my natal country, which is part of the EU. Last year my cousin applied for a maintenance loan, but he applied as a son of a migrant worker because his father is working in the UK and he has been living in the UK for more than 5 years

    My question is, am I am able to apply for a maintenance lone by using my uncle and applying as "nephew of a migrant worker"? Or could I apply through my parents even if they are not working in the UK?

    I think you have to have a close relative to be able to get funding under migrant worker status and i m not sure that nephew is close enough.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
