Hi
I'd like to start my course in Sep 2020. I am an EU national living in the UK for over a year to this day and I didn't move to England to study. I've got pre-settled status.
My sister and brother-in-law, both EU nationals, have settled status. Could I be eligible for funding through either of them?
Both my university and course qualify for funding.
Thank you

Hello,

If you’ve been resident in the EU for the last 3 years then you’ll be eligible for tuition fees only; we won’t need family member details from you to qualify for this.

You won’t meet the eligibility criteria for a home student you need to have been resident in the UK for 5 years before the start of the 1st academic year of your course. If you’re planning to work through your course you may be eligible for maintenance support as a migrant worker; you’d need to apply as a home student but you’ll need to send us evidence of your employment.

Thanks, Erin N.

Thank you, Erin.

To clarify, the only way for me is to apply after I have lived in the UK for at least 3 years?
I am working and intend to work throughout my course; I can't see clearly where maintenance for migrant worker fits (I'm most interested in tuition fees)

Hi Rob,
No, to apply for the EU Tuition Fee Loan only funding, you need 3 years residency in the EU/EEA, so if you were living in the EU/EEA prior to moving to the UK and can meet this criteria then you will meet the residency criteria.

To apply to Student Finance England (to receive a Maintenance Loan paid directly to you) then you must have 5 years residency in the UK prior to the 1st day of the 1st academic year of your course or you need to meet the Migrant Worker http://ow.ly/2x0230oL92f criteria.
Thanks, Isaac.
