Hi, I need some advice for my student finance application. My plan is to start my undergraduate degree from this year September. I have applied for my student finance and sent all the required documents they asked for.
Sadly, they refused my application as I don’t meet the 3 year of residency criteria.
The first day of the academic year is 1st of September and I’ll meet that requirement on 9th of September. So basically I’m missing out 1 year of my academic life just because of those 8 days difference. The SLC has given me the option to appeal against it. But before I make the appeal I want to know if someone faced similar kind of situation before or if it’ll be appropriate to appeal as the difference is only 8 days and I don’t actually want to lose this one year of my academic life.
Thanks

You dont meet the criteria.
You will need to look for evidence you were resident in the EU or UK before 1 Sept as that is the rule.
You can find detailed information on ukcisa.

Well I’m not talking about the fees status, I’m a home student.
secondly last year SLC said to my sister that they can re-consider the 3 years residency if the difference is by 7/8 days, I guess it should be same in my case as well

Not if SFE decide otherwise. You already seem to know the answer so cant see the point in explaining the rules to you. Mind boggles as to what you think fee status is.
