    Hi,

    I am trying to apply for Student Finance. I emigrated from EU country in 2012 and have lived here since. The options for my residency status on website are:

    Limited Leave to Remain
    Settled Status
    EU National

    I believe that I fall under the EU national category but does that imply I am a EU country resident applying to study in UK? This way the maintenance loan it suggested was only 4k... Help anyone?? I will call them tomorrow but just seeing if anyone has a quick fix.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are an EU National, and have made no other application for residency other than exercising your rights under the various European Union agreements, you are an EU National for the purpose of that application.

    Limited leave to remain implies that you hold a visa with a date of expiry requiring you to leave the country.
    Settled status would imply that you have made some advancement on your normal EU status.

    If you have been living in England for 5 years as an EU national then you have settled status but the forms aren't always straight forward.
    https://www.ukcisa.org.uk/Informatio...ort#layer-6193 has the definitions of who is entitled and you would be applying under category 3. England: Non-UK EU nationals living in the UK and Islands
    "EU nationals and their family members acquire the right of permanent residence after a five-year period of uninterrupted lawful residence in the UK."

    On the paper form you would answer "Yes" to both questions under A2 and be directed straight to C2 to list your residency history http://media.slc.co.uk/sfe/1819/ft/s...orm_1819_o.pdf
