Irish passport holdersWatch
Just want to get some clarity around applying for a student loan and maintenance grant; my sister is an Irish passport holder and has lived in England for 3.5 years. Can you please advise whether she can apply as Home/English Student or has to be as an EU student. Her course is BSc Nursing starting in January 2019.
Republic of Ireland (ROI) nationals can apply as Home Students to Student Finance England. They must be ordinarily resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the first day of the first academic year of the course and be ordinarily resident in the UK on the first day of the first academic year of the course.
This thread is two years old (!!) but for maintenance loans it's 5 years off residence required instead of 3 years
