Good afternoon, I am from Greece but have lived in the UK for nearly five years. I have done my GCSEs and currently would have finished A Levels but due to the COVID-19 exams are cancelled. Unfortunately I am not able to apply properly and have to apply as an EU national which limits me a lot and that is because I came to the UK in October 2015. So for one month I am not able to apply properly as a home student. Does it count if I lived in the UK when I was younger for nearly 4 years and nearly 5 years from 2015?

Hi there, are you a UK National or Greek National?
Thanks, Isaac

I am a Greek national, my mother has the settlement status. I got my National Insurance number at 16 normally as I was attending education here. I came to the UK for permanent stay 27 October 2015 and my mother in November 2014, unfortunately for such a small gap I am missing the opportunity to apply properly online for a Student Loan and a maintenance loan since I will be living out.

As you have not resided in the UK since the 01/09/2015 you are ineligible to apply as a home student for a September academic year course start. However what you could do is find a university that has a course that starts in January or February and then you only need 5 years residency from the 01/01/2016 and therefore will be eligible, this just means starting a few months later.
Thanks, Isaac

I see, so I apply as an EU national but what am I supposed to do since I am living out. Do I have to talk with the university or something, it is sad to lose my chance to apply for maintenance loan just for close to one month gap.

Yes but like I said, you could wait a few months and enroll onto a January course.

Good morning, if you start in September, you will be ineligible for the duration of your course even in the 2nd year, 3rd year etc.

If you start the course in January, you only need to have resided in the UK since 01/01/2016 and therefore would be eligible.
Thanks, Isaac

Is it possible to apply for student finance later on? I understand the deadline is May 22nd but can I not apply when my course has started?

Apologies for the delay in responding to your query. Yes you can apply when your course starts but that means the funding will be delayed. You have up until 9 months after the academic year starts to apply.
Thanks, Isaac

No, you can wait for your finance to pay the fee but your university might want to know why you have not paid anything or in an extreme circumstance they could suspend you from attending if nothing has been paid.
Thanks, Isaac
