    Hi,
    I'm a UK citizen who was born in England (my entire family are English) and I've lived here since May 2016. I hope to begin my University studying next year but I'm unsure of my status for eligibility for a student loan.

    For reference, I lived in England for a year when I was much younger and will have been living here for two consecutive years by the time I start my studies. I've also already completed a year at the University of Leicester, although I intend to start a different degree.

    Please let me know if I can provide any further information.
    Thank you.

    Hi thisisbensmith,

    Do you hold a UK passport? where have you been living before you returned to the UK in 2016?

    Thanks

    Hi Catherine,
    Yes, I do hold a UK passport. I lived in New Zealand from 1999 to 2016.

    Hi thisisbensmith,

    Depending on the circumstances students may be eligible to apply for Student Support if they have been outside the EU/EEA on a temporary break. Students will be required to provide evidence of their temporary break regardless of the length of time they were temporarily absent for.

    Being on a Gap Year, doing voluntary work overseas, student/parents active service in the armed forces, parents working abroad on a temporary contact of employment etc are examples of temporary breaks.

    Students who emigrated to another country outside of EEA/Switzerland and who are unable to satisfy Student Finance England that their break was of a temporary nature would not be eligible for funding.

    Regards,

    Stuart
