Hello,
I am an EU university student that has resided in the U.K. for now five years. I have completed my first year with only my tuition fees covered by SFE, as I was previously told by my Sixth Form (which I now realise was of no help at all) that I would be able to apply for a maintenance loan in second year as I would have lived in the country for over 5 years when starting the year. However, in late May i came to discover that that wasn’t the case but I was however still in time to apply under Migrant Worker Status. It was not specified to me that I would have to reapply for tuition fees too, and therefore I only applied for my maintenance loan which was approved. However, I received an email from my University informing me that SFE had withdrawn my tuition fees for first year, which quickly led me to applying through the migrant worker status. A few weeks later I received a letter saying that I had missed the deadline for first year and I could not receive the tuition fee and therefore I now have the whole of first year tuition fee overdue and I have no idea of what to do. Second year is starting at the end of the month and until the payment is made I won’t be able to enroll. Any advice would be appreciated as I am genuinely helpless and don’t know where to turn.

beyond my expertise at the moment to know exactly how this would play out.

I am not sure on what basis they would withdraw fees as you appear to have been eligible at the time, which would mean my reaction would be to appeal that decision.
