    Hey,
    I am an EU applicant and I have lived in the UK for 3.5 years. I can only take a student loan for tuition fees but not for living costs. What are the options for me as an EU applicant to get any financial support? Is anyone else has the same problem?
    Also, I have applied for both English and Scottish universities so are there different support for the 2 cases?

    I really need help guys
    thanks

    Hi lovechocolate101,

    You can receive maintenance support if you,

    • Are ordinarily resident in England on the first day of the first academic year of the course.
    • Have 5 years residency in the UK.

    You can also apply as a Migrant Worker or the child of a Migrant Worker if you fit the following criteria,

    • 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
    • They/their spouse/civil partner/their parent/step parent/grandparent/grandchild must receive wages for this work but can also have ‘pocket money’ for voluntary work i.e. Au Pair
    • This work must be effective, genuine and not of a scale which would be considered marginal or ancillary

    If you are going to be studying in Scotland and applying, to the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) you will need to contact them directly to find out your eligibility on 0300 555 0505.

    Thanks

    Catherine
