I was looking into whether I would be eligible for a doctoral loan and one of the questions on the form is:
Will you have lived in the UK for 3 years or more immediately prior to 1 September 2019?
Why are we asking about this date? Don’t include periods of:
• any temporary accommodation you may have stayed in while living away from home
• halls of residence or temporary student accommodation
If I have spent 2/3 in a shared house (with other students) as a full-time student, and the last one in the same house, working and paying Council Tax (spoke to both Landlord and Council), do I answer yes or no?
The first year was the last year of my BA, and the second one was my MA year. Or is any time spent as a student considered 'temporary'? I was in England year-round, except for 1-2 weeks each year.
