Hi,

As an Eu migrant worker, I have applied for student loan and maintenance allowance.

I applied for both not based on household income as i am a mature student, single and independent (deceased parents, no partner).

I will be studying as a full-time nurse (hopefully).

I am hoping to get the full amount to help me specially with rent, food, transportation, school expenses.

If I don't get the full amount, I am afraid I am going to cancel my applications (both uni and loans) as I don't think I am going to survive with less than the full amount. I will only be able to manage working about 10 hours a week, so that's not a big help either.

What shall I do? I don't know any other way to fund my studies. My biggest hope is for my loans (full amount) to be approved or I won't be able to study at all

Hi Tia,


When did you submit your application? Applications at the moment are taking around 6-8 weeks to process at the moment. Make sure you have sent all the relevant evidence to ensure we process this for you.

Thanks, Erin

About 3 weeks ago. But my question is, some people don't get the maximum amount, that's what i am afraid of. Thanks Erin for your response.👍

Hi there,


If you are an independent student and have indicated this on your application and evidence is provided if you are under 25 then there is no reason why you wouldn't get the maximum, again we can't confirm this until our assessment team have reviewed this.

Thanks, Erin

I am over 25 and independent, no partner, no parents (deceased). I filled up section 2-6 and the declaration on p.25-26.

I skipped section 7-8 as i don't want student finance based on household income.

But to prove that you're independent, there's a page on Section 7 about this.

And i did not fill this up because i asked in this forum before and someone fron SFE told me that it's only necessary to fill up if you have a partner, parents, agent.

What do i do now? How can i clarify this? Is there any number i can call so they can have a look at my case?

Thanks in advance

Hi there,


If you are over 25 then you will automatically be assessed as a independent student, you don't need to complete the section with regards to parents, partners etc.

Thanks, Erin
