    Hi, i am a British Citizen who is asking a couple of questions on behalf of my sister. Are the criterias between applying for Student Loans and being granted Home Status the same, or are there additional requirements to apply for student loans? What are the differences in eligibility for both if there are any?

    Secondly, my sister is a british national who will be back in the UK a year before starting university. While this does not cover her mandatory 3 years before the start of university, our father ( who we are dependent on and is also a British National) will be there working in UK for more than 3 years before the start of ny sister's university. In this case, is she eligible for loans, and if not that, home status fees?

    Hi Lejutt,

    UK nationals are still required to have 3 years residency in the UK prior to the start of their course to be eligible for home funding.
    What country has your sister been living in and how may years has she lived in that country?
    Also was your sister born in the UK?

    Thanks

    My sister was born in London and is currently in Pakistan for the last 9 years because my mother had to come back from UK to take care of her parents. I understand that in this scenario she will not be eligible for home funding, but will she have to pay the home fees or international one?

    Hi Lejutt,

    Unfortunately you sister would not be eligible to apply for funding from Student Finance as she does not have the required residency within the UK to be eligible for finance.

    It would be the University or colleges decision as to whether they would charge your sister home fees or international fees. I would suggest that you contact them directly for further information and advise.


    Thanks
