    Hi there, hungarian student here~ I could barely find any scholarships for EU students offered by the unis I applied to (scottish ones) and my question is that where should I search for non-uni specific scholarships? Are there scholarships for those coming from low income homes? Thank you for the answer c:
    I'm sorry, we would be unable to comment on the scholarships that each university offers, or other scholarships that may be available. This might be something you wish to discuss with each university.

    I've got an offer of admission for an Mphil in Education At Cambridge University, and I applied before the funding deadline in December.
    I have double citizenship, both UK and EU. What should I do while I wait for fundings to contact me back? Can I submit some more applications? and who to?
    Thank you !!

    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.

    Republic of Ireland (ROI) nationals can apply as Home Students. They must be ordinarily resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the first day of the first academic year of the course and be ordinarily resident in the UK on the first day of the first academic year of the course.

    From the information you have provided, you would apply as a home student, on a new student application form.

    The application process is now open.

    Hi,

    I'm an EU student from Italy. I would have been living in the uk for 3 years at the start of my course. I'm also a child of a migrant worker (my mother). I would appreciate it if you could lead me on how to apply for tuition fees and maintenance loan as a child of a migrant worker.

    Many thanks,

    I am an EU national (been living in Spain for the last 2 years, plus about 10 years before that --the rest of the time I was in America--). If I study at Scotland (undergrad), I know I can get tuition fee help. But what about living expenses?

    Hi Houssame

    If you are the child of a migrant worker you would apply online at www.gov.uk/studentfinance

    We'll then ask you for the necessary evidence.

    Thanks

    Hi Carlos

    We aren't able to give any advice on any funding you might be able to get from Student Awards Agency Scotland.

    We'd suggest having a look on their website www.saas.gov.uk to see if you can find out more.

    Thanks

    Hi Francosi

    EU students can usually get funding for tuition fees no matter how long they've lived in the UK. Because you've lived in the UK for more than 5 years, you should also be able to get help with your living costs. This also means you can apply online at www.gov.uk instead of on paper.

    Hi Florgora

    We usually use this calculation to work out how much student finance you can get:

    Length of new course + 1 year, minus any years of previous study (even if it was outside of the UK).

    In your case (assuming your new course is 3 years), this would be:

    3 + 1 - 2 = 2 years of student finance support

    This means it doesn't look like you'd get funding for the first year of your new course.

    However, there are exceptions to this rule, such as if you're studying nursing, medicine etc. You can find out more here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/stu...ts-eligibility

    Hello there, I am an Eu citizen living in the uk since 2014 I am applying for the student loan and I was asked to provide evidence of how I supported myself for the last 3 years. I have found the evidence fact sheet but I'm still not sure what I should provide other than my passport. p60? payslips? I wish the pdf was more clearer.

    Hi,

    I really need help with my student finance application process, as I am worried about the possibility of not receiving any kind of financial help.

    I am an EU National from Spain, and I am right know with the application proccess for student finance (tuition fee loan for a BA (Hons) 3D Games Art & Design in Hertfordshire University). I would like to know whether I would be elegible for student finance having a Spanish Ciclo Formativo de Grado Superior qualification, which I think it is similar to a UK HND. If so, what would be the amount I would receive?

    Secondly, I would like to know what evidence I should provide in terms of household income. I am currently living with my parents but I have managed to work in a part-time job during the past 2 years in order to earn some money for paying more or less my living costs in UK. What kind of financial document I should send along with my application?

    I would greatly appreciate it if you kindly give me some feedback on this.

    Regards,
    Maria.
