    Hi

    I am of Pakistani nationality and Irish citizenship and am currently applying for student finance for the year 2018/2019. I have been living and studying in the UK since August 2013 and had a query about what status I should apply with. When I was applying with settled status it asked for the date my settled status was issued. I don’t believe I was ever issued with settled status and wanted to know if i should have been issued it. Also will this affect my application in any way.

    Thanks

    Hi Mirairo,

    To be eligible for funding you must meet the following residency criteria,

    • ROW nationals should hold either Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) or Indefinite Leave to Enter (ILE) status and have been ordinarily resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the first day of the first academic year of the course or
    • ROW nationals can have Long Residency in the UK (ROW students can also be considered as exceptions, if they have been granted Refugee Status by the Home Office they can apply for student finance.
    • be ordinarily resident in the UK on the first day of the first academic year of the course; or
    • have settled status with no restrictions and resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the course start date.

    Thanks

    Catherine
