Copies or Original DocumentsWatch
I am an EU national and i've just completed my application form for the university loans. It says I have to send my national identity card but does it have to be the original or will a copy suffice? I don't have a passport so if i send the original i can't apply to jobs or other things that require it. What should i do?
If you are applying as an undergraduate, for EU funding, that is Tuition Fee Loan only, we can accept certified copies of identity evidence from an EU national.
To confirm your identity we would require either:
- an EU / EEA Passport or Temporary Passport
- an EU / EEA National Identity Card
We would need the documents EU/EAA Nationals send to be original if they are applying as a home student for SFE Undergraduate funding, for a Postgraduate Loan (PGL) or an Advanced Learner Loan (AdvLL).
