I am a first year student at Strathclyde. Although I have lived abroad for the past 8 years I return to Scotland every year. MY father is on a temporary contract and I am a UK national with a national insurance number and I have family in Scotland and UK. I have been awarded domestic home status from Strathclyde however I have been told I am not eligible for a loan. Does anyone have any advice as I have home status for the university but not for the loan which I will be paying back! Any advice welcome.

Ask SAAS on what basis you arent eligible for a loan.
What is their sticking point? Residence? Normally they would follow the lead of the university unless they have other reasons to suspect you dont meet the requirements. Returning once a year may not be considered enough. You need to ask.
Unis arent always that thorough.
