    Hey guys

    I’m about to apply for a student loan because I’m starting uni on September. I specifically looking for how I can apply for a maintenance loan. I’m from the EU and I have been living in the UK for less than three years. Do you know if I can apply for a maintenance loan if I live less than three years in the UK because no websites explain it.

    Hi Marrsm,

    Are you applying as an undergraduate for the academic year 2018/19 ?

    Can I ask if you or any of your EU/EEA family members are working in the UK?

    Thanks Rona

    Hi Marrsm,

    EU students are entitled to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan only.

    As an EU student in order to be assessed for the same level of support as a home student you would need to meet the five years residency requirement in the UK.

    You will be pleased to know that the EEA Migrant Worker team assess students who do not meet the required standard core eligibility requirements but the student or their EU/EEA family member are working in the UK. and if accepted as a Migrant Worker you can be assessed for full support.

    • EU/EEA or Swiss National (or family member of)
    • Lawfully resident in the EU/EEA for at least 3 years prior to the start of their course
    • Ordinary resident in England or Wales on the first day of the first academic year of their course
    • They/their spouse/civil partner/their parent/step parent/grandparent/Child or grandchild must be working throughout the students studies

    Apply online on a PN1 application form, here is a link,

    http://bit.ly/1hErcvL

    You will have to send evidence of employment depending on who the Migrant Worker is, whether employed or self employed and original identity evidence.

    If you are employed in the UK and planning to continue working throughout your studies we will need,

    We will request the following evidence dependent on your employment status.

    Employed
    • The students original Passport or National ID Card
    • Croatian Nationals Only - Migrant Worker’s Permit (yellow/blue or purple card)
    • A copy of the students contract of employment that accurately represents their contracted hours and pay. We will also need a letter from the employer confirming the contract accurately represents the hours and terms of which the student works if this is not confirmed on their contract of employment or if the student is on a zero hour contract. This letter needs to be signed by a member of the Human Resources Department or their Manager (we may verify the students employment status with their employer)
    • The students last 3 months payslips (if available)
    • The students most recent P60 (if available)
    • Termly evidence

    Regards Rona
