    I just wanted to know if anyone has been in my situation and if you have, how did you handle it.
    I am in the final year of my course, Pharmacy, and i had a change of event at the end of my 3rd year, as my residency as an EU student changed. I was due to receive a Permanent Residence but did not get this residency status till after 3 months into the academic, December.
    Student finance now claims i am not eligible for tuition fee and can only receive maintenance loan for term 2 and 3 and at this point I am receiving withdrawal emails from my university.
    I am hoping to appeal this decision but wanted any advice if anyone has been in this position before.

    If your uni has a student law clinic then take it there.
    Not entirely clear what has happened. You should get a full explanation as to why they rejected you. The way you are presenting it, then its something to do with being a permanent resident or not? Its not clear t me from your post.

    You can also take it to a student advisor, but you need to write down a full explanation plus take along any documents.

    Its important whoever is giving advice knows the full situation and reasons. It is just unclear to me at the moment.
