Would I be able to apply for student finance if I’m a child of someone that has got residency in the UK? My mum just got her residency after staying in the UK for 10 years but I just have further leave to remain (not a resident yet). I’ve stayed in the UK for nearly 5 years.

I found this bit in the website where it says “granted leave to remain or a child of someone granted leave to remain”.

Hi there,

Can you please confirm your nationality? Is your Mum an EU National?

Warm regards,
Graeme

I’m from Philippines and no, my mum isn’t an EU. But she’s got her residency last year November and is applying for citizenship this year.

Alright, thanks. As for yourself, you said you have limited leave to remain - do you plan to apply for indefinite leave anytime soon?

Warm regards,
Graeme

I don’t think I can apply anytime soon since I’m still waiting for my limited leave to remain (currently on 3C leave).

Okay, last question: does your Mum have Indefinite Leave to Remain?

Warm regards,
Graeme

Alright - if you have Limited Leave to Remain, you can only apply for student finance if you can meet the Long Residency criteria. Based on what you've said, that's not possible in your case, unfortunately.

However, your Mum has Indefinite Leave to Remain; which makes her a British National. British Nationals are also EU Nationals, so you could potentially apply for EU funding as the child of an EU National. If accepted, this will allow you to claim the Tuition Fee Loan.

Warm regards,
Graeme

I’ve just called SFE and told them what I’ve said in this thread. What they said is that I have to be a child of an EEA national or an EU national. What does that make me? Is UK not part of EEA? If I apply, would my application be even accessed?

Hi

The UK is an EU member state, which is also part of the EEA. Therefore if mother is now a British National, you could potentially apply for EU funding as the child of an EU National.

Thanks
