Hi there, apologies for the delay in responding.

Do you still require help or was it resolved? Please let me know.

Thanks, Isaac

Hi I complained and I am awaiting a response
Did you submit a complaint or an appeal?

Why did the assessors state you are ineligible?

Thanks, Isaac

I submitted a complaint because I had appealed but it was rejected. They said because I didn’t apply for the EU settlement scheme I was not eligible and I’m trying to argue that because I have Indefinite Leave to Remain I didn’t need to apply for the EU settlement scheme and the website states having Indefinite Leave to Remain is acceptable.

The UKICSA website is a useful source of info:

Not my area of expertise but it suggests that having IDLR by itself is not grounds for funding, although certain sub-categories would.

EU Nationals are required to have settled status(which is indefinite leave to remain)

The specific requirement for indefinite leave to remain and 3 years of valid status is for non EU applicants.

What is your Nationality?

Thanks, Isaac

As an EU National, you are required to specifically have settled status to apply as a home student.

I agree with the assessors decision in this case unfortunately.

Thanks, Isaac

So you are saying that my indefinite leave to remain is useless/invalid in this case? Why is ILR only for non-eu nationals? ILR gives me the same right as someone with with EU settlement and the website states you can apply with ILR but doesn’t specify its for non-EU only

Yes. I have seen similar cases to yours but I'm unsure why an EU National has been awarded indefinite leave to remain before the brexit rules, because an EU National did not need any status at that time.

Settled status is indefinite leave to remain but it's also 2 different separate status'.

Non Eu Nationals are awarded limited leave to remain and then can apply for indefinite leave to remain.
Eu Nationals are awarded pre settled status and then receive settled status.

Are you able to contact the home office and ask specifically for settled status?

Thanks, Isaac

Just a little update. The complaints team agreed my appeal should have been approved. The appeals team eventually concluded that I am eligible for the loan and I got my money
