so I'm a migrant worker student. I've lived in the UK since Nov 2018, and now have a pre-settled status and was working the whole time however because of the pandemic I was put on furlough so I went back home stay with my family on December 12th. and came back to the UK on May 28th. I had a plane ticket to come back to the UK on January 19th but the UK was on lockdown so I stayed for exactly 169 days outside the UK. I'm I still eligible for student finance? or did I break the continuous residency rule?

Hello,

I would suggest applying, however currently, due to the break you would be ineligible without the evidence. You would need to provide evidence to show your time in Africa due to covid was of a temporary nature.

Thanks, Lynsey.

Can I provide my uk payslips because I was still employed in the uk, as evidence and my original ticket that was scheduled to return on January 19th. What other evidence could I provide?
And I thought that days less than 180 wouldn’t break your continuous residence status?

Hello,

Yes, that evidence should be fine.
If anything further is required, we will let you know.

Thanks, Lynsey.

Hello Lynsey,

I had previously asked you questions.
So for this question : In the three years prior to the start of the first academic year of your course, did you live outside the UK and Islands at any time? Do I reply yes or no? Because I didn live in Africa I was just stuck there because of lockdown.
