    Were you living on the EU for at least a year before you came to the UK?

    You need 3 years residence in the EEA by 1 Sept 2018 to qualify.

    Hi, I'm a EU citizen (Croatian) with an undergraduate degree from a Scottish university and I have an offer from Cambridge. As far as I'm aware, I can apply for the SLC as I've been resident in EU since I was born. However, that loan would only cover my tuition fees. Is there any other additional help, be it loans or scholarships (besides the ones offered by the university), that I could apply for that would help with living expenses?

    Also, how much before the start of the course is ideal to apply for the loan? Mine starts in October 2018.
