Hi,

I currently have plans to spend a year abroad, outside the EU, at a language school before returning to the UK and then applying to uni. I was wondering if i would be eligible to receive student finance upon my return?

I'm aware there's a 3 year living requirement, but i have also read that under certain circumstances you can get around that. What are my options here?

The residence requirement is based on "ordinary" residence. Your ordinary residence isn't affected by TEMPORARY stays abroad. If you can prove that your time abroad is temporary (using contracts, visas and flights/travel bookings) then your residence will stay as your UK residence even though you're living elsewhere.

Hi there,

As long as you can show your break was temporary you will be required to provide evidence of your temporary break regardless of the length of time they were temporary absent for. A UK, EU and ROW Nationals who have been outside of the EU/EEA on a temporary break is treated as though you have never left the UK, as long as you are back in time for the course start date then this is acceptable.

Thanks, Amy
