I have applied for a Master’s loan and sent my EU passport as requested by them today to support my application.
Though as they say it could take up to 6 weeks to process I’m slightly concerned they may tell me on the week I’m supposed to enrol that I can’t received funding for whatever reason, then I would have very little time to sort something out, if even possible.

I believe I meet all requirements, however, I’m confused about one:

  • normally live in Wales, and didn’t move there for the purposes of study

But then below it says this for EU students:

  • you’ve normally lived in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland for the past three years;

  • You’ll be studying at a university in Wales.


I moved to Wales 3 years ago to start my undergraduate course, prior to that I was living in England.
In total I have been in the U.K. for 6 years and 8 months with an Italian(EU) passport.

I will be studying in an University in Wales, meet the age and course requirements, the course is designed by the welsh government and I never had funding for a post graduate course.

Basically the problem is whether, “normally live in Wales” would be an issue or not?

Well it seems as if you did move to Wales for the purposes of study because you moved 3 years ago to start an undergrad course. I'm not entirely sure how much this will affect you, but I'm 99% sure you don't meet that requirement.

I know I don’t meet that requirement, the question is whether that requirement is vital or whether the fact that I’m from the EU means I can get funding because I meet that criteria.

If having “normally live in Wales” was vital I don’t see why they would also add “Finance may be available to you if: 1 - normally live in the EU (which I do cause normally I live in the UK) 2 - will be studying in a university in Wales (which I will)

Just needed some confirmation from an EU student that may have been in the same situation or someone who knows someone, for peace of mind.
