Non EU spouse of a British national

Hi,

I am non EU spouse of British national. My visa status is Spouse - leave to remain.
I have been in the UK for many year (over 3). I want to apply for a course that starts next September and I only want tuition fee loan. Am I eligible? i have been getting mixed information and i don't know what to believe.

I dont want to be disappointed again.

Hi there,

Has your spouse also been living in the UK for the past 3 years?

Thanks, Graeme

Thanks, yes - based on this you'll be eligible for the Tuition Fee Loan. You'll also be eligible for the Maintenance Loan but you don't need to claim this if you don't want to.

Thanks, Graeme

Well l just applied under this route, the sfe were asking me to provide further evidence dated back to 2002 to prove long-term residency as a family member of a UK national. My wife is British while l have limited leave ti remain. Been living in UK for over 15years. Due to insufficient document to prove long-term residency, l have to cancel that application and apply again as a family member of UK national. Don't know what their reply would be to this.
