Hi,My cousin was sentenced to 6 years in jail when he was 18. He just got out of jail now and he is almost 24. He doesn’t have any employable skill and he is struggling to enter the job market because of his criminal record. We are trying to understand if he is eligible for financial support from Student Finance England to start an undergraduate degree in any university in England, either as a part time or full time student.

Convictions don't seem to have any bearing on SFE funding entitlement:
The Student Loans Company offer financial support to anybody studying in higher education to cover the cost of tuition fees and living expenses. The Student Loans Company do not ask you to disclose details of criminal convictions however, UCAS, with your consent, may share details of your application with the Student Loans Company.
