Hi. My name is Elizabeth. I'm a non UK citizen. I would like to know if I am eligible for student finance to study in England. I am Nigerian but I have lived in Italy for 10 years ( from 2009 to 2019), I have Italian parmanent residency but I don't have an EU passport. I now like in sweden. My grandma lives and works in the UK and has an Italian passport . I am applying for a 4 tier general visa to study in the uk and I'm in need of financial support. Can I ask for student loan as an eu student??

If you need a visa to live in the UK then you aren’t eligible for government funding.

Can I ask for student loan from another country? Because I live in Sweden, it might be possible to apply for loan in Sweden to study abroad.

Are you sure ? I was told that student finance loan doesn't count as "public funds "

Ask the experts if you don't believe me

It might not count as public funds but that also doesn't mean you're eligible if you need a tier 4 visa to enter the country!

Hi there, you will be ineligible for SFE funding, are your parents EU Nationals in the UK or only your Grandma?

As a non EU National, to receive EU funding, you must be a family member of an EU National and must be able to prove legal residency status for any periods of residency in the UK, if you don't have any period of residency in the UK then you may be asked to provide treaty rights evidence.

Thanks, Isaac.
