    Hi, I am really worried about my fee status and eligibility for a student loan. I am an EU National *(Spain), but I have lived in Ecuador from a very young age. My mother, who is also an EU National, has been living in the EEA for more than 10 years now, and 2 years in London, specifically. I want to know if I Would be eligible for a student loan based on my mother's residence and her status as a migrant worker*(as a relevant family member) since I want to apply for a course in England in 2018.

    Hi da_ben2,

    To apply as the spouse of a migrant worker, you need to fit the following criteria.

    • EU/EEA or Swiss National (or family member of)
    • Lawfully resident in the EU/EEA for at least 3 years prior to the start of their course
    • Ordinary resident in England or Wales on the first day of the first academic year of their course
    • They/their spouse/civil partner/their parent/step parent/grandparent/Child or grandchild must be working throughout the students studies
    • They/their spouse/civil partner/their parent/step parent/grandparent/grandchild must receive wages for this work but can also have ‘pocket money’ for voluntary work i.e. Au Pair
    • This work must be effective, genuine and not of a scale which would be considered marginal or ancillary

    The quickest way to apply is online, or you can complete a paper application PN1, forms for 18/19 are not currently available and would advise that you keep checking the website or social media sites when available will show on there.

    Thanks

    Catherine
