    I came from iraq in October 2014 with my dad ( started his PhD studying on mathematics and biostatistics) . and I came with him and I started doing my GCSE and I finished them and carried on to A level. right now I year 13 student and I applied for universities to study medicine. The problem is my dad is going back in 2019 and I want to stay here and continue studying. however, I can not afford the university cost and living by myself (going back iraq mean no future to me because I have to start school again because of the differences in both systems) I came with dependent visa on my dad tire4 visa. question is can I get student loans? I have been in England all that time and if not can I get scholarship or international student loans?

    You should ask student loans and immigration authorities, clearly.

    My understanding is that loans are based on residency, so i think you should be fine. What i am not clear on is whether you are allowed to stay after your dad leaves, independent of being at uni or not.
