Hello, my daughter was born in UK and lived until she was 8 years old, we moved to Mexico then and lived there for 10 years, she is 18 years old now and have been living in UK for the last academic year studying a course of higher education with excellent grades.
Is she eligible to get student finance loan?

Hi Olga,

To qualify for Higher Education support, a UK national must meet the following residency requirements:
  • Ordinarily resident in the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man for the 3 years immediately before the 1st day of the 1st academic year of their course (except UK nationals who are exercising their right to reside)
  • Ordinarily resident in England on the 1st day of the 1st academic year of their course.*
  • Settled under the terms of Immigration Act 1971 (and not subject to any restrictions on the period for which they may stay).

Thanks

Catherine

Does it count that her father has been living in UK paying taxes and that she lived there until she was 8?

Hi Olga,

To qualify for Higher Education support, a UK national, the student herself must meet the following residency requirements: be ordinarily resident in the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man for the 3 years immediately before the 1st day of the 1st academic year of their course.

If they have been outside of the EEA, only temporary breaks in residency can be accepted.

If the break was not temporary, then once she has three years residency back in the UK she will be eligible for support.

Thanks Rona
